How to lengthen stems on beamed notes

• Mar 22, 2010 - 14:14

How do I lengthen the stems on beamed notes? I have sets of four beamed eighth notes for a flute part and when I get to high G and above it is hard to read the notes because the stems are too short, causing the beams to cover up those little staff lines under the notes (whatever those are called). I have tried lengthening note stems overall and that only lengthens all the unbeamed notes like quarter and half notes. Thanks for your help.


I tried double-clicking and moving the beam between two eighth notes (after shortening the stems) but it doesn't respond. It turns green (it's the second voice on that staff), but when I try to drag it it just stays put.
