Beam Extension Selection dialog box


How to get there

  1. Click the Special Tools tool  image\Special_Tools_Tool.gif, then click any measure containing beamed notes.
  2. Click the Beam Extension Tool. A handle appears at each end of each beam; double-click the handle at the end of the beam you want to extend.

What it does

When you extend a beam (for example, to beam across a barline), the Beam Extension Selection dialog box lets you specify whether you want to extend all the beams (if there are sixteenth-note and other secondary beams), or only selected secondary beams.

Tip. Any beam not selected cannot be extended.
