if I add triplets on a normal note, it'll be fine.
but if i press Ctrl +3 on a dotted note, like dotted semibreve (dotted whole), it turns out 3 tripletted minims (three triplet halfs) instead of 4.5 or 9 3plet crochet (3plet 4th note).
hope for improving. thanks.

BTW, my version is not newest, it's

thank you very much.


If you are getting 3 1/2 notes and rests with a triplet mark above them? This is what is expected. Using a triplet on a dotted note is redundant. If you are expecting 3 dotted 1/2 notes you can use the Notes->Tuplets->other... menu and make the relationship to 3/2 since there are normally 2 dotted 1/2 notes in a dotted whole note. If you want something else you will need to break the dotted whole note into some smaller duration to allow for the triplets.

Ctrl+3 splitting the selected duration into 3 rests or the next shorter duration is intended and as such by design
