Upbeat with three 8th notes

Hi, is there a simple way to start a line with only three 8th notes in 4/4 measure? I found only the option with two or four 8th notes there, but I don’t want to have a rest at the begin.

Using Shift-M, try entering 4/4,1.5.

for more info, have a look here:

Ok, that will fetch, 4/4,1.5 is the right way to do it. Thank you dankreider!
