I think the command
Command: Two Note (or Chord) Tremolo
Takes the selected two notes or chords and repeats them to make up the duration
of a longer note. This will then be typeset using the tremolo notation (beaming
placed between notes), while the Denemo Display will show and sound the
Location: Object Menu ▶ Notes/Rests
Internal Name: TwoNoteTremolo
already does place the tremolo mark where Peter described. I've just
had a try and it does seem to work:
Insert two semiquavers (1/16th) notes.
Select them leaving the cursor inside the selection.
Invoke the command and give 8 as the number of times to sound the notes
The result is that Denemo fills bar in the display with a further 14
semiquavers so that the playback sound is right and the typeset shows
two semibreves (whole notes) with double beam between as Peter

The double beam created by the above command is not something that
could be dragged in the Print View - dragging is only possible for
objects that appear in the Denemo Display as Denemo Directives - either
standalone or attached to a note/chord.

Are you thinking of a tremolo marking on a single note here? I see that
it does not behave properly when you try to move it :(, it has its own
edit procedure that doesn't include moving the position of the symbol -
you would have to delve into the LilyPond syntax to try and do that, my
guess is that it would be quite arcane.

??? not sure if you are in the Object Editor when you pressed Advanced,
or what the "line of buttons" is, or where a green tremolo word
appears...??? What was it that you were trying to do?
