Beam Over Rests
For a long time, I thought Musescore didn't support beaming over rests. When I found out that it is possible, I tried it. I opened up Musescore and just added an 8th note, an 8th rest, and another 8th note to the end of a score that was already open. I highlighted the rest and double-clicked the "Beam middle" option. It changed the first 8th note to look like half of a double 8th note sequence but left the 8th rest and second 8th note untouched.
I've attached three images. The last one is how it should look.
