I have a piece of music in 3/4 which has bars like { d4. c8 b8. a16 } Lilypond groups the last three notes together, making it look like a 6/8 measure, but I want the c8 to be separate and only the b8. a16 to be grouped
(like a proper 3/4 would look like).

I've tried some settings, like #(override-auto-beam-setting '(end * * * *) 1
or \set beatGrouping = #'(4 4 4) but to no avail.

The proper way to set beatGrouping is #'(1 1 1), which means group 1 beat, 1 beat 1 beat, where a beat is defined by the time signature as a 1/4 note.

But this doesn't work properly, and it should.

I think this is a bug in the autobeaming code. Could you please send a bug
report to bug-lilypond?

This is not a bug.  There is still a general auto-beam
setting for 3/4 time which inhibits beatGrouping.

beatBrouping should work with the override

#(revert-auto-beam-setting '(end * * 3 4) 3 4)

I was waiting for 2.13 before I completed this work, as
changing the default beaming did not seem right during
a stable release.
