Feathered Beaming

• Nov 14, 2016 - 15:35

I have a passage that I'd like to try to use feathered beaming in. When selecting the passage (I used 64th notes for the subdivision) the beams remained the same. Is there a step I am missing, or should I try another subdivision?

Sometimes the beam changes position then but not layout: It doesn't "feather".

An example is in the File attachments: (How do I replicate) the bar in the picture (?)

(Also how do I get the spacing in between the notes "right": The 2nd whole note (2nd Piano) is placed further right than the half + 8 eights + the whole + a few eights notes (1st Piano) ?)

I'm also having some problems with this.
I have a passage, that lasts about as long as indicated in attachement "1", but the notes don't have to be played exactly to the beat. Now, I tried making them all 16th-notes, beaming them together and making it a feathered beam (as shown in attachements "2", "3" and "4"), but as you can see, they don't have one massive feathered beam together. Is that just not possible, or am I missing something?
