Are you referring to the final 16ths in each of the beamed groups in the
center stave?

What I mean is: These final 16ths look pretty good, but they cause the
corresponding 8th notes in the top and bottom staff to be spaced pretty
irregularly. And in effect inacceptably.

As I have to get that score ready ASAP I can't wait for a proper fix (if
it should be considered a bug) but need a workaround that works better
than having to space the notes in all measures manually.

Well, I agree that this is a grave problem, and all the more grave since it’s difficult to work around. I now see Trevor could come up with two ways, but both seem to turn off optical spacing altogether. It seems like the spacing engine just does not take the quavers into account, which would mean making some sort of a compromise between optimal spacing for the semiquavers and the quavers. This is really deep down in the spacing engine and I’m pretty sure that it’s unconfigurable. The question is: whom do we have that might be able to provide a fix? :-( Jan? Han-Wen? (they’ve rather completely left the project, haven’t they?) Mike? Graham? Or David K., are you somewhat acquainted with that area of the source? At least I’ve created <https://sourceforge.net/p/testlilyissues/issues/4665/> – not a Defect, but an Enhancement, since it’s about functionality that we just don’t have currently…

Yours, Simon
