How to maintain continuous eighth note beaming while crossing down
In a piece with 3/4 time, I have one measure where all the notes in the treble are eighths. It starts with an eighth of rest, followed by 5 eighth notes. I have figured out how to customize the beaming such that all 5 notes are beamed together. However, in this particular sequence of notes, I need the first and last notes to cross down to the bass clef. When I select the last note and ask it to cross down, it does so with no problem, keeping the beaming continuous. However, when I select the first of the five notes and ask it to cross down, it crosses down but breaks away from the continuous beaming and is now a standalone eighth in the bass clef. Is there a way to accomplish this while keeping the beaming continuous?
