Half note over eight note

Postby linutisp » Sun Aug 19, 2018 12:02 pm

This is for guitar notation. I want to see hollow half note over an eight note as in the second picture. Sibelius hides it with an eight note as in the first picture. Is it possible?

You can get that effect by making the first quaver/eighth note in the group a headless note:
Shortcut Alt + Shift + 7 (in Sib 7.5 Windows 10)

Also: you might want to shorten the quaver stem as it may not quite match up for the dotted minim notehead, or nudge the dotted minim to the left in the Inspector.
