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

4 threes per bar? I've tried what I thought was the correct syntax, but it

%%% 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.
