Adding length to beam between notes?

• Aug 11, 2021 - 15:58

Is it possible to extend the length opf a beam between notes? For Example, 2 eighth notes, extend the spacing between them.


Can you explain why you are trying to do this? There are mathematical rules for calculating the proper spacing between notes according to their duration; manually moving notes like that will mess it up. If the goal is simply to make the measure wider - or perhaps have fewer measures on the system - best to simply add a system break, or use the stretch commands as necessary for fine tuning, etc. Or, if the goal is to defeat the usual rules of notation and have completely proportional spacing for the purpose of a pedagogical exercise, use invisible rests in another voice.
