tremolo help needed

Hi all,
I am having difficulty with the above tremolo. See how the edges of the 16th & 32nd beams of the second tremolo are supposed to be indented a little bit? Well, I can indent the left hand edge of the tremolo beams using a beam tool, but I am unable to indent the right hand tremolo beam edge. (It is possible to do so if I break the 8th beam, but that is not what I need). Any ideas?

Cheers,
Hector.

Alas, it looks like you can only extend beams that are connected to an outer stem.

You could fake it. Here, I left the sixteenths and eighth unconnected, used TGTools to make the 8th note look like a quarter, them drew a fake beam with the smart-shape tool.

Thanks motet! That worked perfectly. Fake it 'til you make it, as they say ;)

It looks a little strange, though. Maybe connect two of the beams to the stems?
