Settings for beam angle / stem length within staff?

What setting should use to fix this? The flags are too close to the noteheads. I like how the beam is in the middle of the staff, but I’ve never seen Dorico use such weird stem lengths before. I looked through the various settings for stem lengths or beam angle, and couldn’t find anything that made the beam less angled. I’d rather not have to adjust manually every time this type of thing occurs.


Unfortunately I don’t think there are any engraving options that will influence these slants in isolation. You could set the slants generally to smaller values (e.g. up to 1/2 space for anything larger than an interval of a third, and 1/4 space for an interval of a second) which will produce less steeply slanted beams throughout.
