Look at Bach's manuscript and follow what he has. And the arrangement for keyboard should also follow the beaming in the violin original manuscript.

Re: Community creates a textual font

Actually this task is much harder than what I expected. Any suggestions how to embolden a font properly is welcome. There’s a reason why you can get a university degree in type design.

-- Extended Techniques for the Classical Guitar: A Guide for Composers by Robert Allan Lunn
