Creating Fanned Beams

You can create fanned beams for an accelerando or ritardando, for example.


  1. Select the notes for which you want to create a fanned beam.
  2. Right-click one of the notes, and from the Group/Ungroup submenu, select Accelerando.
  3. Activate a note value option to specify an accelerando or a ritardando.
  4. Click OK.


A grouped beam is created to indicate the accelerando or ritardando.
