Pardon, I’m stumped as to how I can reliably, consistently generate durations such as (one minim + one triplet-crotchet = total duration of eight triplet-quavers) or (one full crotchet + one triplet-crotchet = total duration of five triplet-quavers).
I seem to have stumbled upon getting the first IF it starts on the second quaver of a triple-quaver group: viz., by inputting the note as a (triplet) crotchet (such that the tuplet isn’t carried over to the next beat), and then changing the note’s duration to a minim (causing Dorico to combine the triplet crotchet with the regular crotchet that follows). But how do I do this to make the same duration start on the third triplet-quaver of the beat, short of doing all of the above and then cutting-and-pasting that duration onto the last triplet-quaver? Surely there’s a more direct way to do this?
P.S. If it’s helpful to clarify, the passage I’m inputting right now involves the following series of durations: over six crotchet beats, three notes, of which the first totals eight triplet-quavers, and the latter two each total five triplet-quavers.
