Where shall I look?  BTW, is there a documentation how rods and
springs interact?

OK.  Will have a look and try something.

Please elaborate.  I'm quite lost here and currently can't see the big

A dotted, beamed note gets automatically more horizontal space due to
the dot(s); I think nothing should change in this case.  This holds
for beamed notes in general.  Regarding flagged notes, I'm not sure,
but many flagged notes in succession are rather rare.  The additional
space I envision should be applied to notes only which don't have a
beam or a flag.
