Triplets in the tab staff

Post by Germain » Tue Jan 08, 2019 12:32 am

Hi
I'm working with a tab staff only when I'm entering the fret number for notes everything works fine until I have to enter a triplets. The triplets with not enter in tab staff how can I enter a triplets directly in the tab staff since I have no notation staff displayed.

Thanks for your help

Germain

What note entry tool are you using?
- Speedy Entry Tool?
- or Simple Entry Tool?

Both entry tools can enter tuplets, via their Tuplet (sub-)Tools.
I just tried entering tuplets in TAB, and both entry tools worked for me.


To enter a tuplet in Speedy Entry Tool, hold down CTRL, and hit a number key. Examples:
CTRL-2 to make the following entry a duplet
CTRL-3 to make the following entry a triplet
CTRL-4 to make the following entry …

CTRL-1 to open the Tuplet Definition, and define the following tuplet (create a user defined tuplet).


To enter a tuplet in Simple Entry Tool, take a look in the sub-menus:
Simple menu > Simple Edit Commands > Change Duration > Create Tuplet
All the commands are displayed in the sub-menus, with their keyboard shortcuts.

Thanks so much Peter for your quick response

I was able to enter the triplet but the only thing that doesn't show is the number 3 under and I don't know why.

I'm using simple entry

I have to figure out why the number 3 doesn't display

Many thanks for your help and wish you an Happy new year.

Cheers

Just a wild guess:

Is the TAB staff set up to show tuplets?
