Is there a way to hide the beam in a group of 8th notes?

Post by queylotrie » Thu Oct 25, 2018 5:18 pm

I am trying to work on a modern piece of music, and a thought that I had was to possibly hide the beam or flag of a set of 8th notes. If I try to change the color or opacity to white and 0, the beam/flag still shows.

Is there perhaps something else I can do?

A screenshot would be useful here, as I'm not entirely sure what you're asking.

You can use the "Hide stem" property in Engrave mode to turn bar 1 into bar 2, like so:

Or you can use a hidden tuplet, ratio 4:2, to make four crotchets/quarters take up the space of four quavers, like so:

You could even use manually entered rests (using Force Duration) in another voice, to achieve the following, which, though possible, is completely unclear!:
