Title 3.0.5.5992 Small Note’s Beam Placement and Shape Grace note stem slash position too close to note if stem is very short
Severity S3 - Major S4 - Minor
Workaround No Yes

I take it you are referring to the slash through the stem - there is no beam on the grace note? As far as I can tell, this only applies to grace notes that are also made small (or, if the grace note size is made small enough Format / Style / Sizes). The calculation of the slash position is based on the end of the stem, and if the stem gets too short, the slash indeed gets closer to the notehead. Probably we should also enforce a minimum distance to notehead. Meanwhile, the slash can be adjusted normally (edit mode or Inspector).
