Beam Properties

• May 22, 2016 - 18:07

So I know that I can go to the beam properties to un-connect the notes, but I don't know how to do that for sixteenth notes. I have a piece I'm transposing, and it's 6/8 time but the sixteenth notes keep connecting to each other. Does anyone know how to separate them?


Beam Properties works exactly the same for sixteenths as for eighths.

But in 6/8, you shouldn't need to override the defaults. Beaming six sixteenths togehter is pretty standard; you would need a very special reaosn to deviate from this standard - people are very accustomed to reading sixteenths this way, and doing it differently would make it harder to read because the rhythms would not look familiar.
