Flipping selected stems for guitar is unintuitive / more work than expected
I've got some music for a guitar player. I'd like to flip the lower notes played using thumb, as it's commonly annotated. This turns out to be quite hard.
It looks like there are two approaches - the first one doesn't work in this situation, because using the "stem flip" button flips the whole group, which is not what I'm after:
The second approach is to use two voices, which I can do, however it requires a lot more work:
This inserts the rests for the other voice, which I need to explicitly hide, but also watch out that I don't hide rests which are actually necessary. Then every time I edit such bar, there's more cleanup to do after each modification.
It's a really annoying situation and I'd love to have an action for "flip stem, but actually only this one... no, really".
