Instead of blocking users from pasting "into" tuplets, I suggest replacing the original one with the clipboard content (new tuplet, or otherwise). That would allow, for example, the user to copy a duplet, click on the first note of triplet, and hit paste to replace it. The triplet would be automatically deleted before the duplet is pasted. Right now, the user gets a dialogue box "Cannot past into tuplet" even when the tuplet is not being pasted "into" another tuplet but is completely replacing it. Consequently, the user has to delete the tuplet manually before pasting new content in its place.


Comments

I agree. This error should only happen when the users selects a note in the tuplet and the entire tuplet will not be replaced with the paste. The fix should also allow for pasting text to notes in a tuplet without an error.
