Re: Another Mozart Centered Beam

Ah, authenticity, what a difficult and deep topic! If it were to be "authentic", then why not use the soprano clef directly? But I see your point: in the manuscript, there is no space constraint that would have obliged him to write the centred beam. So it must be a conscientious choice. Th...

Re: Another Mozart Centered Beam

Sounds like the safer choice, yes. I'm not sure, though, that a centred beam would make me play the music differently. Another story would be if we could have curved beams (à-la-JSBach), in which case, then, a centred beam could assume a musical meaning to, for example, not separate the notes too mu...

Re: Another Mozart Centered Beam

I agree with your choice.
Most of centred beams in my experience are there due to spacing concerns and not forcibly for musical reasons.

Re: Dorico slurs and beams

I have a dream: beam slant sets!
You open the editor, set your ideal slants for every interval and up-down stem and it gets applied whenever possible!

Re: Dorico slurs and beams

This gives so much food for thought! The only thing I don’t like of Ross’s prescriptions is the 1 1/4 slant for 4ths and 5ths. It’s too big for me. When straddling both is possible (note in space most of the times) I prefer 1 space slant. When this is not possible, I prefer to have it sit-hang or ha...

Re: Dorico slurs and beams

I actually tried to spend some time tweaking my beam settings a couple of weeks ago. I tried to copy pages 104 and 105 of the Ross book to start by getting some good settings for two notes, but ended up quite frustrated. Here's as close as I could get just by using Engraving Options and no manual t...

Re: I am really having problems with this slurs

This looks great John!
I hadn't thought about a slanted hairpin, and that's just *the* thing!

Re: Finale 27.4 released

However I find the output much more pleasant than in Sibelius I have ever managed to make. It might be the fonts, the spacing algorithm or definition of shapes and curves. Perhaps also because many things are edited manually. Sibelius can achieve a cleaner result than Finale with a lot of manual ed...
