I'm writing out a band part from the score and was wondering if you could help me with a problem I've run into.
The time signature is 12/8 and is beat as four groups of three quavers (eighth notes). I have set up the tuplets with a ratio of 4 to 6 -- which should be 4 semiquavers played in the time of 6.
Why does MuseScore require the quaver circled in red to have a dot? Within the tuplet it is double the length of the semiquavers so shouldn't be required to have a dot.
Thanks for your help!
