It's a similar topic, but not the same topic. Many engravers further 
shortened stems on the very lowest and highest opposed notes not on the 
staff. To fit more systems on the page, one presumes. They can be barely
a  linespace long. The shortening of opposed stems now has been optimum
in  the midrange for a long time, IMO.

A command with a minimum stem length could turn it on. The stems of 
successive adjacent notes would each be made longer to where the regular 
(already shortened) length was reached. Without specified high/low 
pitches it could be implemented according to the range of the music in 
the system. Regards, daveA

For beginners: very easy guitar music, solos, duets, exercises. Early
intermediate guitar solos. One best scale set for all guitarists. ::: plus new and
better chord and arpeggio exercises.
