Grouping Notes under Beams with the Group Notes Function

You can group any selection of eighth notes or smaller under a beam using the Group Notes function.


  1. Select at least the two notes where you want the beam to begin and end.
  2. In the Functions section of the extended toolbar, click Group Notes.

If you group quarter notes, half notes, and other notes that are normally not displayed with beams under a beam, the result is a so-called Brillenbass symbol, commonly used for indicating repeated accompaniment patterns.
