Triplets copy & paste not working as expected


I wanted to replicate a a couple of triplets and they transferred over as eigth notes.
Am I doing something wrong, is my understanding incorrect or is it a bug?

Please see attached!

Thank you,

Make sure you select the triplet brackets as well as the notes.

This is intentional, even if it’s confusing until you realize what to do. It’s a side effect of being able to convert notes to and from tuplets outside of note input mode, using the ; and : shortcuts.

And if the brackets and numbers do not show (as is usually done when many tuplets in a row), make sure the tuplet signposts show, and that you select the signposts along with the notes.

Thank you very much!
