Space individual notes
trying to see if I can break away from Dorico - I'm on Elements and seriously restricted for the musical I'm scoring, limited to 12 parts in Dorico and there are 7 singers parts to start with. Upgrade is out of budget for now and probably forever...
So far I'm loving Musecore (what a huge leap in functionality and layout since I last looked several years ago!)
However, I'm not yet convinced of the engraving / layout options. I appreciate the ability to do the stretches and layout in the same page (in Elements there's no engraving option). In particular there are times when the distance between two notes within a bar is too tight for my taste, and stretching the bar doesn't fix it. I've tried the F8 and offsets etc, but can only seem to move either the stem or the notehead separately - and then I cannot seem to make the beam stretch to the right, despite clicking on "grow right" - several options are greyed out too.
Any ideas for the best way to tidy this up? The first png is Dorico standard non-edited spacing, the second is Muse, and the third what happens when I open inspector to adjust. CMD clicking the notehead and the stem brings up an entirely different dialogue box.
