Beam restchords
Is there any way to beam this in NWC 2.75?

Code: (nwc) [Select · Download]
!NoteWorthyComposerClip(2.75,Single)
|RestChord|Dur:16th|Opts:Stem=Down,ArticulationsOnStem|Dur2:8th|Pos2:0
|RestChord|Dur:16th|Opts:Stem=Down,ArticulationsOnStem|Dur2:8th|Pos2:2
!NoteWorthyComposerClip-End

I don't think it is possible today. Especially since the duration of your rests (16th) are different than the duration of your notes (8th).

If you compare the nwctxt formats for normal beamed chords and your chords, it seems that it is not forseen to keep this double information (options for some notes in the chord, options for other notes in the chord). That may also be the reason why in a chord with different stem directions you can only beam one direction (UP or DOWN, but not both).

Code: [Select · Download]
|RestChord|Dur:16th|Opts:Stem=Down,ArticulationsOnStem|Dur2:8th|Pos2:0
|RestChord|Dur:16th|Opts:Stem=Down,ArticulationsOnStem|Dur2:8th|Pos2:2
|Chord|Dur:8th|Pos:-2,0|Opts:Stem=Up,Beam=First
|Chord|Dur:8th|Pos:0,2|Opts:Stem=Up,Beam=End

The previous code shows how nwctxt changes when switching the direction for a chord with notes in different directions. The beamed notes come first, all others are added at the end but without a possibility to add a beam clause.

Layering is the way to go to achieve "multiple beamed chord notes".

As I have written many times in the past, IMO, NoteWorthy would be improved if it supported the beaming of RestChords.
