SOLUTION FOUND: It was a freaking bug, I restarted Dorico, did the exact same thing and now I managed to insert the first note to it’s right place INSIDE the triplet. Geez. An hour wasted.
UPDATE: It seems I was too hasty (also very frustrated) and it wasn’t a bug after all, it was most likely incorrect usage of the Insert mode. But since I was able to insert 2nd and 3rd note it didn’t occur that I was actually inserting notes AFTER 1st and 2nd notes, if that makes any sense.
I have trying to get my head around this and I just guess I’m stupid but the inserting tuplets is a hellish nightmare for me.
First I tried to insert three 8th notes, select them and press the tuplet-button and expected them to turn into a triplet. Nothing happened. Well, that would have been too intuitive I guess. Oookay.
Then I read the manual and learn that I can press “;” to activate tuplet function or whatever. Yes! I select those three notes and press “;” preparing to insert “3:2”…and nothing happens. Oookay.
I re-read the manual and figure out that I need to select a tuplet first before inserting any notes and can’t convert the old ones. Oookay.
Next try from scratch. 1) I select an 8th-note, 2) I press key command “;” and write 3:2. Then I see three 8th note rests with triplet mark added below them.Hmm…Oookay.
So I guess I just replace the rests in the rest-triplet with actual 8th-notes. And surely I can do that for the second and third rest but why ou why the first note always goes outside of the triplet even if the carrot is dead-on on the top of the first rest of the triplet?
I have now tried for half hour and haven’t successfully entered a triplet.
Edit- Make that an hour. Whatever I do I can’t replace that first rest of the triplet with a note.
I’m seriously pulling my hair out of frustration(s) this program has given me.
