Is there a way to beam so 8th and 16th subdivisions are very clear?
Please see example – of what Dorico does – and my handwriting of what I want:
In examples #1 and #2, Dorico’s beaming is unclear (especially #2 – that’s complete gobbledygook to my eyes).
I thought maybe setting the meter to 8/8 or 16/16 might help, but 8/8 made it even more unreadable and 16/16 didn’t change anything.
Another related topic, less important but a personal preference, again for utmost clarity in rhythmic notation – in example #3, I want the 32nd beams to extend to the right to cover the 32nd rest. I found I can achieve that by turning on stemlets, but I don’t like the look of the stemlets themselves…
Many thanks for any ideas!
