Notating loops and continuation lines

Hi! There’s a feature that I’ve been looking for for a while and haven’t been able to find. Contemporary scores very often feature thick beams for long held notes or looped passages:

Is there any way to do this natively or through a workaround of sorts?
Thanks so much!

I would create a line of the desired thickness, then specify that it has to start from the notehead and just insert it via the Lines panel.
It requires a bit of experimentation to get used to, but it should work.


A tutorial in case anyone comes here looking for an answer. Would be nice to have this implemented as a native function rather than having to go DIY.
