Eighth notes grouping

• Jun 5, 2019 - 17:01

I´m trying to enter eighth notes in a blues piece such that only 2 eighths are connected so that four sequential notes would be shown as 2 joined eighths followed by another 2 joined eighth notes. Unfortunately MuseScore connects all four notes together which is not helpful when playing in the blues/swing rhythm.
Is there a simple solution to this problem?


FWIW, though, the convention of beaming eighth notes in groups of four is pretty universal even in blues/swing/jazz. Most published music in these genres follows it, so it is what most musicians are accustomed so, and I wouldn't deviate from this standard without good reason.
