Suggestion: Toggle Automatic Beaming Starting on Upbeats (in Common Time)
Currently in Musescore, there is no way to have beams not automatically start on the upbeat. I suggest there be a checkbox setting in the Time Signature settings.
Attached is an example of how Musescore currently beams 8th notes in 4/4 when starting on the upbeat. (Top staff) I would like to see an option to automatically group beams like in the bottom staff.
Personally, I have to manually adjust the beaming for these. I find that changing the beam grouping can help provide a clearer sense of where the beat is. I realize not everybody will find it so, or that some others just don't really care, but it is something I do for almost any score I make.
This suggestion came from a forum post in the General forum.
