I know the other threads, I hope this one is seen as different enough to warrant a new thread:
If I deal with drumset notation and triplets in more than one instrument, with Engraving option [put everything in one voice] enabled:
when I want to copy a note into an existing triplet:
If the note is of correct length so it does not explode-out from the triplet
if the position of the new note i want to paste is in the middle of the triplet (first notes of triplets are more forgiving and always work with pasting)
Sometimes it is possible to copy the note into an existing triplet (in the middle!) without the copied note to be a triplet, and
sometimes one need to explicitly create a triplet, copy notes and the triplet marking, and then Dorico fuses both triplets with a satisfactory clean result, and
sometimes the triplets stack on top of each other.
I should be anticipating what causes which result by now, but it would be of great help if anyone could explain this to me, because more often than not — I have to redo a group couple of times before I finally do it the right way.
I have made 2 videos explaining my process, reasoning and effects.
One video is a success story, pasting a note in the middle of existing triplet
Second one is a struggle story, trying to paste note in the middle (end) of an existing triplet, trying to copy it with a triplet marking, and then rewriting the triplet in the other drum instrument, which allows to paste a note, but only if the triplet marking is also copied.
So sometimes it works without the triplet marking, sometimes with a triplet marking, and sometimes only works if the other instrument (higher note?) is with the triplet first. Please advise, and thank you for your time!
I would like to clarify, that I know that copying a note without a triplet marking should produce a normal (duple) note — as we see in the second video. But then why the first video works, and spoils me with such great results without needing to do any of that?
Is this because in the first video I copy into a triplet made with a higher note? Is this because I copy a 16th note in the middle, and not a potentially 8th note in the end, making it a duple?
