Title: Guitar Pro 7.5 please help me with using note beams
Post by: hazelalice on February 20, 2019, 04:51:18 pm
Hi all,

Apologies if this is in the wrong place (this is my first post) I was wondering if anyone knew how to set the beams in Guitar Pro to connect correctly. At the moment when ever I put in four 8th notes - it groups them in twos. So two 8th notes and then two more 8th notes. Is there a way to set the programme that it will do it automatically in groups of 4 as it should be?

Thanks!

I don't remember how the interface works in GP7. I had the trial version but I uninstalled it.

In GP6 there's a 'Force Beams' button. Highlight the notes on the stave and click the button, et voila!

Exactly the same button in GP7 and same position as JdG,s screenshots. Just highlight the notes and select the button. There's also an Automatic Beam option but I've not played with that yet.

I could never get that to work consistently. I must have skipped that bit of the exceedingly long online manual :)

In GP6 if you go to the 'Help' drop down and click on 'Aide', it opens as a .pdf.

It ain't a great deal of help mind...:)
