I'll try to explain and if it doesn't clarify it, I'll figure out how to attach a screen shot. I'm working on a song where the time is 2/4. In the last measure, there's a single eighth note. So the first measure of the song there are three three eighth notes. The software wants to connect the first two eighth notes, but to be technically correct, it should put the FIRST eighth note as separate and connect the last two. Does that make more sense?
I have leading notes (I think that's what they're called)...three eighth notes. Crescendo would like to group the first two and leave the third by itself, but I'd like to have the opposite. The first note ungrouped, or unbeamed (I think that's the terminology), and the last two connected, or beamed. Can anyone tell me how to do this?
