Seems that link is useful only for the beta testers. Or is there something there that you wanted all of us to see?
Or should I have been allowed access to that forum -- whatever it was?
from what i can tell the stretch only is for notes to the left of the note you are dragging (all notes to the right get shifted but keep exact distance from note dragging)
so if you want to stretch all notes in a measure, ctrl+drag the rightmost note.
note also cntr+drag let-barline lets you shift entire bar with no stretching
Indeed the link I included leads to a restricted area. In most of that post I see mainly points that are publicly obvious, so I'll add some of them here in another post.

Imagine, the barlines are the two poles of a clothesline.
Your notes are on the staff like socks pegged to the clothesline.
Now imagine the line is made of very strong rubber band!
You grab the rubber band somewhere and start to pull in the direction of one pole.
Then you see the socks at that side go closer together (linear proportionally), while at the other side of your hand the distance between them increases (linear proportionally).
I would like to see better solutions, so we can drop this 'stretch' function altogether.
