Changing the thickness of beams

You can change the thickness of individual beams, which can be useful in certain engraving situations. You can do this for the current layout and frame chain only, or for all layouts and frame chains.


  • The lower zone is shown.

  • Properties is selected in the lower zone toolbar.

  • Graphic Editing Graphic Editing button is selected in the Engrave toolbox.

  • You have chosen the appropriate property scope for local properties.


  1. In Engrave mode, select all the noteheads in the beams whose thickness you want to change.

    For the best results, we recommend selecting all notes in each beam.

  2. In the Properties panel, activate Thickness in the Beaming group.
  3. Change the value in the value field.


The thickness of all beam lines in the selected beams is changed. If the property scope was set to Locally, this change only takes effect in the current layout and frame chain.
