Stem Direction

• Jun 20, 2021 - 18:14

In the attached score the stem directions are wrong in e.g. measures 3, 6 and 7 in spite of being set to "auto". Trying to change them to "down" doesn't work. There are other instruments in the score set to "invisible" but I can't see a second voice that might be the reason for the issue.
I don't know, where the score originally came from and who edited what.
The intention of the invisible instruments is to have a leadsheet that could also be used as a playalong. Ideas how to achieve that conveniently are also welcome. TinroofBlues.jpg

As for the "why"; while the stems indeed are all set to "Auto" the beam itself is not for those instances.

For the triplets this was likely a layout choice where the triplet on top creates almost no additional vertical space because of the already present Chord Symbols. But placing the triplet below, it'll push down the lyrics further away from their notes.
