## Re: Automatic beaming of dotted quavers

```Carl,

```
I spent a while trying to get this to work. It looks like the code possibly ignores the numerator, and then treats the dotted 1/8 note as having a minimum value of 1/16 and so applies the 1/16 override to the beaming.
```
HTH a little.

```How can I get Lilypond to beam dotted quavers in 12/16 as 2 pairs per bar

automatically, while retaining its default behaviour of beaming semiquavers in
```4 threes per bar? I've tried what I thought was the correct syntax, but it
fails.

%%% beginning of example

\version "2.13.17"

{
\time 12/16
\overrideBeamSettings #'Score #'(12 . 16) #'end
#'(
((1 . 16) . (3 3 3 3))
((3 . 16) . (2 2))
)
\repeat unfold 12 f'16
\repeat unfold 4 { f'8 f'16 }
\repeat unfold 4 f'8.
}
%%% end of example
```
```
I think this is a bug.  I'm the author of the code in question.  I'll look
into it.

Thanks,

Carl Sorensen
