Simplify triplets.

Hi there.
I would like to recreate this in Sibelius 2019:

I've seen the tuplets plug-in section but I couldn't find any solution.
Greetings.

No time sig shown, so I'm reading that as two sets of four quavers (8ths). Each quaver played as a tremolo at triplet semiquaver (16th) speed.

I'd fake it. Enter the quavers, add the tremolo beam, then use symbols for the dots and the two 3's.

It won't play back, but if that's not an issue, no problem, it will look OK.

Sorry. It's a 4/4 bar and exactly as you had already guessed. Actually that is the end of Isolden's Liebestod by Wagner, cello part.
I've found another method that it will playback:
I write the triplets without simplification, then selecting the first note of the triplet, I change it to a dotted quaver, once the whole bar it's done, I apply the tremolo beam.
It's kind of slow to write but not a big deal since this passage goes like that through more than 20 bars, so if I do it once I can do the rest by copy and paste and modify the notes.
Thanks!
