Tied note independent notehead sizes

Is there any way to make the second tied note smaller? In Engrave Mode, I can select the second one, but when I try to reduce its size, the first note is also affected.

Put the smaller notes into another voice:

Untie the two notes (select one of them and Press " U ") .
Select all the notes in the second bar.
Edit > Voices > Change Voice > New Up-stem Voice.
Select the two notes that you want to tie.
Tie them (Press " T ") .

Tie

PS You will need to delete the whole bar rest that appears from the pre-existing voice. Use “Remove Rests” in the Edit menu.

I didn’t know that you could tie notes from different voices, that’s great! Thanks!
