|the problem with your non-standard solutions is that they align the stems, rather than the noteheads.|
this causes a serious visual conflict within the measure where the first beat has properly positioned stems (opposite sides of properly aligned noteheads), and the second beat has improperly aligned noteheads, and stems that align. it's a very distracting contradiction.
personally, I would hate to read a score written in this manner.
as a performer, I am USED to seeing certain types of note agglomerations take up a certain amount of room.
there are enough notes to warrant taking up the space of three noteheads' width. that's the way we're used to reading it.
I have yet to see it notated differently.
I'll happily capitulate if there are well-written, reputable, published examples presented.

"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs." ~John Rogers

|No, Michel, you needn't capitulate. As I said, Finale's default is correct. FWIW, Elaine Gould clearly states this to be the way it should be done. For some reason, though, my eyes get 'caught' on it, and I'm afraid the composer's eyes will, as well.|

|I'm so used to seeing all types of notational approaches that either way would work for me. I am guessing this is not piano notation, but possibly a reduced score? If it were piano, I don't see why all four Treble Staff notes weren't on 1 stem.|
