I am creating a drum chart in Sibelius. In a particular bar, I want the kick to play two semiquavers at the same time as the first hi-hat dotted quaver. I am using Voice 1 for kick/snare notation and Voice 2 for hi-hat notation.
This is the result. As you can see, the first dotted quaver hi-hat is not vertically in line with the first semiquaver for the kick drum. I think this would be confusing for a drummer to read quickly, as they might instinctively think that the semiquavers should come after the first dotted quaver. No matter which order I put the voices in, or which voice I assign each part to (I've tried both ways), this is invariably the result.
Is there any fix for this? I know I'm nitpicking but this is incredibly frustrating to me. I can't understand why they wouldn't automatically be in line with each other, like the crotchet and quaver are on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th beats.
