Quadruplet problem.

Postby mosaiques » Sat Nov 17, 2018 2:45 pm

Hi there!
Sorry guys if this is a simple question but I can't find the way through.
I just want to put four quarter-notes into a 3/4 bar, a simple quadruplet.
When I insert the first quarter-note and tell Sibelius to create a quadruplet, I get a message "This is too long to fit in a tuplet", which is kind of logical because I'm not trying to create a normal triplet (3:2) but a quadruplet (4:3) and I don't find the way to do it.
Some ideas?
Thanks in advance.

P.S.: Oh, sorry. Sibelius 2018.7 Ultimate. :wink:

You have to go through the Other entry and choose a 4:3 ratio in the dialog. You can't do it directly from the Triplet option.

Yeap! Thanks a lot MikeLyons!
I've tried before the Other entry option, but I didn't know that it was possible to insert two values like 4:3, I thought I had to insert only one number. It's done now.
Thanks!
