Compound Auto-beam

 
Hi friends,

Compound auto-beam has stopped beaming since the last update (or the one right before that, not sure). No error message is returned, it apparently runs, yet it does nothing :(

Welcome back, it's been a long time!

Please supply a sample of the problem - and which version of NWC  you now are using,
so the clever people can try to help you
and I can learn what Compound Auto-Beam is.)

Seems to work for me. Using:

Does what I expect. You must include the time sig in your selection. The Tool does not seem to get it from the "Fake" items.

Hi Ertugrul,

Long time no hear. Hope all is well with you.

Just to say that it still works OK for me too.

I was going to point you to the instructions in the Scripto, but I see that you helped Andrew with an improvement and so it would seem that you must know how it works .

Perhaps the only thing worth reminding you, apart from Rick's comments, is that it won't re-beam anything that's already beamed.
So if you have previously manually  beamed some notes, you may have problems.


(Haymo, it's a user tool written by Andrew Purdam in PHP that allows you to beam where there are complex time signatures such as 7/8 or 13/8 and so on).

Thank you, all.
Rick's sample works beautifully -
This is a welcome tutorial for me.

Thanks guys. Tried Rick's example and it worked. I was trying to use it on a selection (which I remember used to work) and it didn't work. Apparently I have to use it on the entire staff.

PS: Always updating to the latest NWC ;)

You are welcome.

No, you can use it on a selection. It won't do anything until it sees a matching TimeSig. If necessary, insert a TimeSig at the beginning of your selection and remove it after running the tool. This is not new behavior.

That must be it Rick, thank you very much :) I gave a longish break to typesetting stuff for printout and evidently that detail slipped my mind.

It's good to be somewhat active again, though I had been silently lurking all the time ^^
