Fliping stems within a voice with different beams

Postby Joaopbfmus » Fri May 11, 2018 4:08 pm

Hello everyone!

I'm editing Boccherini's cello sonata in Bb major (urtext) and I faced the following challenge.

How can I write this on Sibelius? I've tried different voices and flipping stems but the beams broke or the rhythm was not right (it turned into harmonic intervals)...

Any light here would be really appreciated!

Thanks a lot.

I can't see your entire example. I'm not sure this is correct to begin with. If the notes are to be played together, can they not be on the same stem, even if they are on separate strings?

I'm transcribing it all and couldn't reproduce this carving effect on the Sibelius. Actually, they are 6 consecutive thirty-second notes, with crossing strings, but as they turn out to be two different voices the carver wrote as such, what I really wanted to do on my edition as well. The thing is: I couldn't separate the "voices" WITHIN the same voice. I've tried with the beam change tools and the voice tool and it keeps getting like this:

I know it's really unclean, but I only did this to show that it wasn't working. How could I do it exactly like the first edition I posted?
