Split beam in 6/4 measure

Is there any workaround to have a 6/4 measure which is 3+3 but the 8th and 16 notes inside would be separate? As it looks now, I have to manually spit beams all over the movement. The musical group is 3+3, so I can not use [1+1+1+1+1+1]/4 , because is going to change all the long notes and breaks.
Any solutions? or any changes implementing in the future?


I don’t think 1+1+1+1+1+1/4 will break the longer notes:

In that example yes, but whenever there is a rest f.x. it’s grouped as 2 beats

I need the note grouping 3+3 in general, just the eight/sixteen notes separate beams.

Is there not an option in Notation Options > Beam Grouping that covers this? There might not be and I’m misremembering, but it’s worth double-checking if you haven’t already.

You can also use the time signature with specified beat grouping only on the required bars and only applying to individual staves if needed, and hide the time signatures: that can still be an easier way of handling beams that splitting/grouping beams manually.
