can't readjust beam horizontally
Sorry if this has been discussed previously (did a couple of searches and couldn't find anything). Am having trouble making a beam shorter to match notes I've repositioned. See attached example. In first measure is the original scoring, automatic with musescore. In second measure is my repositioning of the notes and note-stems--but no matter what I do, I can't make the beam shorter to match. What am I missing?
Note: this is, of course, just an example. In my real score, I very badly need to move these notes over to the left for purposes of legibility.
