How can I change the beam type? (E.g. make something beamed as 16th notes to look like 8th note beaming)
Right now I'm writing a piece and want to use a non-standard time signature (9/20 in this instance), but I want the first beat, which is eighth notes in a quarter-note pulse, represented as a 2:5 tuplet, to appear as 8th notes. However, the tuplet automatically represents this as sixteenth note beaming, which I feel looks more confusing and makes less sense than if it were eighth-note beaming. How can I change the beam to look appropriate for the note length here, or otherwise how can I get rid of extra horizontal beams at will?
Below is a screenshot of the measures I'm working with (Bottom two staves are piano, top staff resting is flute). The phrase on the right in 4/4 is exactly what I want the 9/20 into 4/4 phrase on the left to sound like (the F# in the right hand being the beginning of a new measure). On the right you can see the first quarter-note beat is just two eighth notes -- I want that visually to be how the 2:5 in the 9/20 measure to look. I don't want to use a measure of 1/4 and I feel that a measure of 4/20 doesn't properly convey the metrical phrasing.
