Beaming across rests results in collisions

As you know I'm currently working on a piece of Buxtehude as a means of testing 2.0 in its current state.

The latest thing I have come across is annoying for two reasons.


1. As you can see from the picture many of the rests are colliding with the beams. This is partly due to the default position of the rests being a little too high, but also because a lot of the stems are not long enough.

2. If you select all the rests in order to change their position you find that you cannot. Opening the inspector merely provides the option to change colour, and using ctrl+drag as you would in 1.2 just doesn't work - you can change the horizontal position but not the vertical.

I would like to have horizontal and vertical offset fields in the Inspector when selecting a group of elements like this so that it would be possible to finetune their positions in one go.

I've an idea this has come up in the issue tracker before, but a search didn't bring up any matches, so if this is a duplicate, my apologies.

I wasnt sure what priority to give it, so I have left it as normal - if you need to downgrade to minor I will have no objections.
