Using Mac High Sierra and Finale 25, for a three-movement work. Because the first movement is in 6/8 and has so many syncopations, I chose the global preference to include rests within beams, as that makes it much more readable. But I would like that canceled in the second and third movement, as they are in 4/4. There I would like only each quarter-note of music beamed together.

Aside from breaking the piece into three separate Finale files, tech support's only option was what I already knew: I could use the Beam Extension Special Tool to manually override every extended beam and re-flag each relevant eighth in movements two and three. But is there any other solution, external plug-in?

Thanks! --Tony G.

In TGTools there's a Beam Breaker plugin. I've never tried this one, but it looks like it might do what you want. Try it on a copy of your score first.

Interesting. But in my Finale v25 Plugins' TG Tools there's no Beam Breaker plugin, nor within any other category of plugin.

This plugin is not included with Finale. It's an expanded group of plugins which is a separate purchase. You can however download the demo to see if it works for you and you like it.
