[user=6835446]ralphtdog[/user] Notes -> Tuplets -> Triple. or CTRL+3 [user=1628931]SirFlubasquishus[/user] select quarter beat -> press ctrl 3 -> now you have triplet eighth notes [user=103667]beachtanned[/user] Dear Jeff Chen, When you want to write triplets (or other tuplet), on MuseScore, MAKE SURE THE ICON FOR WRITING MUSIC IS OFF first. If that icon is still on, the tuplet process is broken. If you want three eighth notes in place of one quarter note (triplets) then place a quarter note on the line or space where you want the triplet to begin. Then click on "tuplets" above, then on "triplets" which will place triplets in the form of an eighth note and two eighth rests (the triplet), and then you must place a new eighth note for the two rests to create the triplet notes. See page one of a song I just arranged in SATB, Amazing Grace: https://musescore.com/score/3432381/download/pdf If I didn't explain it in detail enough, please feel free to contact me and I will be glad to walk you through the process. Once you get it, you will find it SO EASY to do. The web site also allows you to make many other tuplets. I once needed a 7-note tuplet and it worked quite well. -Don in South Florida [user=2679191]Elwin[/user] select the note or rest, and then hit control+3. [user=23930]Jojo-Schmitz[/user] Nothing to do with improving Musescore.com, so better go to the forum at musescore.org, or read the handbook, here https://musescore.org/en/handbook/tuplet [user=8557601]Pipenguin[/user] 1) Click le note on the beat you want to be triplet-a-fied 2) Ctrl+3 3) Win Not sure if you have to be in editor mode or not. [user=1008891]TisBalakae[/user] If you're on a mac, select the counts you'd like to write them on, then click cmd+3. If you're on a PC, you'd select the counts and click control+3 [user=12387776]RockingComet[/user] First select the note you want to select a note with the duratation of the triplet you want to create (If you want a triplet to last 2 quarter notes then select the half note underneath the page view).There should be a tab at the top right (right of add and to the left of layout) there should be a tab called notes. Select it and go to the drop down and click tuplets. There you can select the type of tuplet to select. There is also a shortcut for this, Ctrl + 3. [user=1628931]SirFlubasquishus[/user] Select note -> ctrl 3 (you can do ctrl 2-9 i think) place notes. [user=8004181]P I X I T Σ[/user] Control 3 [user=29456140]Alexandre Quessy[/user] Finally! I understand how: select a quarter-note rest and hit Command-3 in order to convert it into an eight-note triplet. Your comment Only members of a group can post to group discussions, so Join Triplets?
