paste tuplets / shift rhythm of tuplet line

Post by moritzkeller1 » Sun Jun 26, 2022 7:20 pm

Hey folks,

Is there a way to shift a tuplet phrase rhythmically from the first tuplet to the second? Or can I for example copy a line of tuplets starting on the downbeat and paste it to the second tuplet? Would be really helpfull!

Yes, you can, but watch out for tuplets that might end up crossing a barline.

Thank you,

so there is no way to do it for a longer line that crosses barlines?

You can copy/paste as long as no triplet in the pasted part will cross a barline. So, all triplets should be on and within a beat/half beat. They shoould slo be pasted into a position where they end up on a beat/half beat. Does that make sense to you? If at any point the pasted tuplet will cross a barline, the paste will fail with an error message.
