The Staff view supports beaming of rests, a practice that is popular with rhythmically complex music. Beam lengths are extended to include rests that are integral parts of the beamed group of notes. Short stems, called stemlets, extend from the beam toward the rest. This makes the rhythms easier to read, because the beat boundaries are made clear.
1. Click the Staff view Edit menu and choose Layout to open the Staff View Layout dialog box.
2. Select the Beam Rests option.
3. Click OK.
