On Finale v25 for Mac 10.11.6, the Manual directs me to Document / Document Options / Beams. But there are no options in the Beams Dialog Box that connect eighth note beams across eighth note rests. Finale used to be able to do such simple things. In Speedy Entry, the slash ("/") used to connect the beams of after-beat eighth notes over the rests, no longer. Finale can do much more complex things with beams, why not the simple ones made easy??
