Tuplet problem - uneven notes' durations


When creating tuplets sometimes the durations of subdivisions aren’t even. I don’t think it is a playback problem, since they look uneven in PLAY mode. Do you know the cause of the problem?



Welcome to the forum, @Amit_Gur.

Mathematically speaking the notes’ durations will always be precisely even, because unlike (to my knowledge) all other music notation software, Dorico expresses note durations as rational values, i.e. as fractions, which means that they can express divisions precisely in a way that integral or floating point representations cannot.

When converting these durations for display in pixels, then of course some rounding has to occur, but it should in general not be noticeable.

Can you attach a simple project that demonstrates the problem as you perceive it, so we can take a closer look?
