Re: Speedy CapsLock tuplet entry Undo

Motet, I think the problem is that you "kill" a triplet when you use an arrow key on your computer keyboard. That's why things get messed up when you do it with the second or third note. So: when you go back to a note by an arrow, you will have to do this whole triplet again. I hope you understand w...

Re: I dont know what i did, can you help me figure it out?

For me this sounds as if there are too many notes in a bar before these 3 bars... Can you check that?

Hi Scott, you can edit the multimeasure rest and there is a setting, where you can enter a number with that you want to start the counting. (Sorry for my english, I have a german version.

- when you enter the singers parts uncheck "control beams" (or so, I have the German version Fin 2009) in the speedy entry menu.
- you can change the beaming of existing music in extras/new beams, use beams for text...

Why don't you set your time signature to 3/4 + 3/8 then? This would be much easier and faster to read for the musicians. Much better than the explaination above the system...

I think that "Englisches Horn" is very oldfashioned and not in use anymore.
