Whenever I delete a tuplet, the notes inside also get deleted.

Since tuplets are so limited in usability, I consider this a feature that allows you to delete the tuplet quicker. If you want the tuplet number and/or bar to disappear select it and use the inspector.

I am trying to import eight xml files created by Playscore into one mscz score. They have errors, such as a tuplet across a bar line. I want to be able to delete the tuplet symbols WITHOUT removing the notes. The problem is, the tuplet notation is an error caused by a misreading of imperfections in the score.
I tried deleting all the <notation><tuplet...</notation from the XML but on importing some were still there.
At the moment I would have to delete the tuplet and then re-enter the notes again which is tedious.
