Beaming 32nd note triplets

Post by mend0c1n0s1buser » Sun Jul 10, 2022 11:53 pm

When a quarter note is divided into twelve 32nd note triplets, for ease of reading, is there a way to beam the 32nds showing three groups of four 32nds instead of having the 3 beams connect all twelve 32nd notes? I'm on Sibelius 6.2.0 and on an iMac OS Sierra 10.12.6. Thanks!

You can subdivide the beams using the button on the top row of keypad 3. I thought there was a way to specify these in engraving rules, but it only seems to apply to non-triplet notes. You could try asking this question on the official forum where there might be a better method than the one I used here.
