I’m notating drum set grooves using the drum kit pad in Notion for iPad…. To get the stems to line up I have to choose chord mode instead of melody mode.  But once setting the “notes” for a beat in chord mode, I can’t go back and change one of the notes without shifting the “chord” which of course for a drum set is silly.  For example, a quarter note “chord” on beat 1 includes kick, snare and ride.  If I want to change the snare to tom 1 which shifts the position 2 steps (C to E on Treble clef) the kick and ride shift also.  I assume there is some way to move just one of the notes in the chord but haven’t found it.  And as mentioned, to keep the stems lined up, I don’t want to go to melody mode since the stems get all wonky..
