Grouping eighth notes in manual input mode

How can I group eighth notes in manual input mode so they appear as groups of 4, instead of 2? If I want 4 eighth notes to appear as 1 grouping, not split into 2?

    Hi anahid!

    The general grouping is determined by the time signature. If you double click the time signature, you have the option to manually enter the division. The default is "1+1+1+1/4" for 4/4, meaning that the eigths are divided 2 and 2. If you change this to "2+2/4", you will still have 4/4, but two quarters = four grouped eights per beat.

    If you only want to change the beaming for specific groups, right click a note and choose "Beam -> Join".

    Hope this helps!
