How to alternate eighth notes and rests in such a way, that the beam connects the notes bridging the rest?
There are two ways:
Do not generate the accent via the music symbol tool (letter S on blue dot), but instead via menu format | notes/rests | notes | articulation signs.
You want to change the length of automatic beam groups?
If slurs are drawn wrongly (pointed curve), then please save your file, close capella and start it again.
Please distinguish between slur and tie, capella does it as well.
The bar of a singing voice contains a whole rest, while the piano roll shows a chord of whole notes.
How to remove suddenly appearing compressed notes?
Place the cursor on the relevant voice. Select menu edit | delete | stave/voice.
You want to create and print an empty score sheet?
When entering notes with the mouse and clicking too high above the staff, the note appears as belonging to the staff above.

With a place holder you can force addidional space in your notation.
After setting the left and right margins, the score looks dreadful: In the right margin, some notes are suspended in midair.
If you need to change the clef for an instrument you will have to click from system to system, and doing so all notes are octaved:
The barlines are too thick or too thin?
An appropriate position of the barline is automatically determined.
Please read the manual, keyword Tremolo Bars.
You want to load the preferred system of notation as a default score (for example a four-voice choir)?
