I'm getting a bit crotchety and quavery about this... but I'll be alright in a minim.   Does anyone out there use the Crescendo or Sibelius free music-writing software? I just can't work out how to create a 'beam', which links two of three notes together... and in something like a jig, it's a bit of writing you tend to need a lot!

Thanks.

If you have no luck here, try the sibelius.users.tech-support forum

I've not heard of Sibelius free but this is from the Sibelius 5 reference manual under the heading 'Beam and Rest Groups'.

"Sibelius automatically groups beats appropriately for each time signature you create. You can, however, change these settings for yourself by clicking 'Beam and Rest Groups' in the 'Create' > 'Time Signature' dialogue, or you can change the beam groups in existing music in the 'Notes' > 'Reset Beam Groups' dialogue.

I take this to mean that you either look for the top menu item 'Create', select 'Time Signatures' and then select 'Beam and Rest Groups', or select 'Notes' and then 'Reset Beam Groups'.

My guess would be that the second one should suit best. It might be a good idea to highlight the notes in question first.

Stanron, I assume that Cappuccino is referring to Sibelius First

Sibelius may automatically group beats appropriately for each time signature you create, but maybe you had a pick-up note(s) at the start of the jig. If so, type in rests before the pick-up notes so the first measure is filled up. Then see if the software doesn't put the beams in automatically.

Check to see how the B part begins, as well. The software needs to see 6 eighth-notes' worth of music in every measure to do the automatic beam. After it's done that, you can remove the rests, tidy up the repeat signs and save the file.

That's what happens in Noteworthy, anyway.

Remote North Norfolk, UK; about eight miles south of Cromer, fifteen miles east of Norwich. Just past the back of beyond.

Thanks for the help... I shall be trying these suggestions as soon as I get a minute!
