Hello fellow composers,
Since the beginning of Flat, we decided to make the engraving choices automatic, in order to offer an editor as simple to use as possible. However there are some times when the engraving choices we make are not the most optimal ones. This is something that can happen with ties when there are two voices on the staff:
Here, even if the normal rule states that the tie should be on the opposite direction of the stem, it would make much more sense to have the tie of the top voices facing upward.
To do so, select the note head at the left of the tie you want to flip:
And now click on the tie button. It will open this drop-down:
From here, you will be able to change the tie direction.
This looks much better, isn't it?
I hope it will help you make your score more pleasant to the eye :)
