Trying to achieve the attached automatically:
a 16th note sextuplet beamed as two groups of 3 and with no tuplet markings. I can do it manually with ‘split secondary beam’ and using the tuplet properties to hide the bracket and number, but I was wondering of there’s a better way. I can suppress the number in the engraving options, but this is project wide (which is not desirable in all flows), and the bracket remains.
At another section I have an eighth note triplet. Engraving options state the no number or bracket appear. I do, however, want to show the number for this specific tuplet. Problem is, there is nothing to select in order to bring up the tuplet properties…
Moving forward, I’d love to see more options for tuplets: per-flow options for suppressing numbers and brackets and automatic suppression of repeated tuplets are the two that come to mind.
I also find that I sometimes lose the ‘stickiness’ of tuplets and I’m not sure why. Seems like clicking in the panels does it (e.g. for double-sharps) and also, when trying to start a bar with a rest within a tuplet, moving the caret along cancels the tuplet and it needs to be recreated. Is that a bug? Am I doing something wrong?
