Global stem customization.
I find the stem lengths generated by ms to be fractionally too short to my taste especially where beams are attached. Usually I need to adjust every beam height and angle in a score. This is particularly troublesome where crotchets have slightly longer stems than a pair of beamed quavers of the same pitch.
Another situation I find needs manual adjustment is where there is a rising (or falling) sequence of beamed notes with same interval exists between consecutive notes, yet the beam doesn't follow the same angle as the note heads - the stems shorten to the right.
Are there any global controls that will allow:
1) a small delta to be added to the calculated length of all stems?
2) a way to make beams follow the contour of a rising or falling group?
I guess the answer to these questions is no. So what I'm really asking for is more global controls to influence the beam placement algorithm.
