Unison : how to write 2 identical notes for different voices

A unison is generally represented by 2 identical notes, sung for example by two different chorists. To write these 2 voices in the same measure, one usually places the 2 notes at the same place, but with note beams in different directions.

For that, there is a trick. After you have placed the first note, if you click at the same place, you simply move the note. To introduce the second note, you must click a bit higher or a bit lower. The second note appears and you can then slide it at the same position than the first one.

Do not forget to introduce the voices one by one, then the voice management and the beam directions will be correct. Enter the whole first voice first, then the whole second voice, and keep the automatic justification active ("J" box in the score toolbar).
