Beam these notes!
How do I control which notes are beamed together?
I'm working on a piece in 2/4, with many bars of eighth notes. I want a bar in which the first eighth note is on its own, and the next three are beamed together. For example, bars 1 and 43 (and many others) of the attached piece.
I've tried the beaming commands described in https://musescore.org/en/handbook/beams and MuseScore 2.2.0 doesn't respect my wishes. I've disconnected the first eighth note using the "do not beam this note" command. So far, so good.
But no luck beaming the remaining three eighth notes. I've tried selecting the first one and double-clicking "do not end a beam at this note", "start a beam at this note". I've opened the beam inspector, but that appears just to let me tweak the appearance of an extant beam.
I was looking for a beaming command like "do not end a beam at this note" that forced the start of a beam on that note. Better, let me select a few notes and click "keep these notes beamed"?
