how to set stems and beams through staff on tablature

• Mar 31, 2020 - 22:01

I'm writing down some guitar exercises in tablature, and I'd like to have the stems and beams appear on or through the staff rather than below it.

I right click on the staff > Staff/Part Properties... > Advanced Style Properties... > Note Values but the Through staff option is inactive and not selectable. I do have Show as: set to Stems and beams as mentioned in the handbook:

Is there some other option I must enable or disable? Or have I misread the handbook?


Try this:
Press I (the letter).
Then, under 'Staff type', expand the drop down list and change to 'Tab. 6-str. full'.
If desired, you can get rid of the time signature and any rests displaying by using Staff/Part Properties.
