Question Modify the rhythm of two beamed quavers

I'm trying to alter the rhythm of two quavers that are beamed together in the last beat of a 4/4 bar

I simply want to make the first quaver a semiquaver, beamed to a dotted quaver . . . or perhaps the reverse. (A dotted quaver beamed to a semiquaver).

This seems to be a simple transition to make, but in <Composer> any alterations to the note values seems to "break" the beam, generate numerous rests and start messing with the following bar, adding ties and even chords (two noteheads on one stick).

Is there a way to turn OFF the snapping features that cause <Composer> to keep "Completing the Circle" at every alteration?

I would be handy, I feel, if such notations could be entered "as a pair".

I would have hoped that the SW would guess that I was merely changing the internal arrangement of the pair of notes.

I have looked through the docs, but so far have been unable to work out how to accomplish this . . . .

Have I missed something?

Best Regards

Lord Elpus
