How can I set 4/4 time signature properties to beam dotted rhythms in 2 beat groups?
Is it possible to set the time signature properties so that if I have four groups of dotted quaver-semiquavers they are grouped in pairs rather than separately.
I want this
Rather than this
The time signature properties indicate that quavers should be grouped in fours and that indeed happens but not the dotted rhythms. I tried ticking the "Also change shorter notes" box but that has no effect and indeed the setting does not seem to be saved as it is unticked again when I reopen the time signature properties.
I am transcribing a piece that has bars and bars of dotted rhythms and adjusting the beam properties on each group is going to be tedious.
Am I missing something obvious?
