Half note notation with beams?
In some older music (examples are from Francois Couperin) the notation is very different from what we are used to nowadays, for instance the use of half notes which are beamed like eighth-notes. I wonder if it is possible in Musescore (I have version 188.8.131.52, te latest) to mimic this notation, here are two examples:
I have tried to accomplish this, and it is possible in the following way:
- choose time signature 3/8, but change display via properties to show 3/2
- notate in eighth-notes but change the noteheads to half notes via inspector
Thast looks good, but problems arise when there are rests, and for more than a few bars it is an enormous amount of work, so the question is if there is a more friendly or efficient way to do this?
