Note spacing + beam direction
Two issues with the notes in the attachments:
I want these notes evenly spaced. In the Spacing2 example, no adjustments have been made; Spacing has been left alone. Musescore has not evenly spaced the notes--the sixteenths are closer to the eighth note following than the one preceding. In the Spacing1 example, Style | General | Measure | Spacing has been increased. Musescore spaces the notes further apart but still refuses to space them evenly. And if the sixteenths must be closer to one eighth note than another, I'd rather they were closer to the preceding than the following notes. That's what makes the most rhythmic sense to me, anyway. Is there a way to make these sixteenths behave?
2. Beam direction:
The sixteenth beams face different directions. I'd rather have them both facing backward (pointing toward the beginning of the measure rather than the end). The Beams palette doesn't seem to offer a relevant option. Can this be done?
