What it does
The 4-Beam Groups dialog box allows you
to adjust the distance between the beams when there are 4 beams present.
You can specify when space should be added depending on how the beam is
drawn in relation to staff placement, the number of beams at the end or
the creation of wedges. See also Patterson Beams plug-in.
Separation Amount. Enter a value in the current measurement unit
to be added to the Beam Separation amount.
Staff Only · Only If An Endpoint Has Enough Beams ·
Only If Resulting Beam Creates A Wedge. Check each option that
you want to have 4-Beam Groups edited. In Staff Only requires the beam
group to be inside or touch a staff line. Only If An Endpoint Has Enough
Beams requires the beam group start or end with 4 beams. Only If Resulting
Beam Creates A Wedge requires the beam group to form a white triangular
space between any beam and a staff line.
Beam Thickness. Checking this option causes the specified amount
to be added to the beam thickness. Enter a value to be added to the Beam
Thickness in Document Options-Beams (under the Document menu). Normally,
this value is less than or equal to the Additional Separation Amount.
