Eighth Note Triplet Problem.

Postby sus4 » Wed Nov 23, 2016 3:57 pm

When I write an eighth note triplet with the middle eighth note left out I get a straight line down and an eighth rest in place of the middle eighth note. I've gone back and highlighted that line and am able to drag the line up and hide it. This works, but is very time consuming especially when you have a lot of eighth note triplets.
Is there a way of not getting that line in place of the middle eighth note?

Thanks.

I am unable to replicate this. How are you creating triplets?

I choose a measure where I want the notes. I choose an eighth note from the keypad and put it in the measure. I highlight the note, press COMM + 3 and the triplet bracket comes on over the note. I then put another eighth note where the 3rd eighth note would go. I end up with an eighth note, an eighth rest and another eighth to complete the triplet. It looks fine except over the eighth rest there is a line coming down as if there was another eighth note, There technically shouldn't be a line coming down over the rest. So, I'm able to click on the bottom of the line and a little square appears which you can grab and drag up to the bracket and hide it. When you're putting in a lot of eighth note triplets, fixing this is time consuming. Hope this explains it.

And now I just check the parts to be printed out....all the editing with "those" eighth with the line coming down in my score and I saved them, well they were not saved in the parts. Either I'm doing something wrong or not. So, I either have to redo all the parts and correct the triplets, which is more time consuming, or just leave it alone. I think something is not right.

Engraving RUles>Beams and Stems>Beamed rest checkboxes (bottom left). PLay with those and you should get the behaviour you want.

I think there was a glitch in the program, don't know why. I opened another version I have and it worked fine. No problem with the eighth notes and no vertical line.
Thanks for your responses.
