Creating rests for tuplets

• Jan 29, 2021 - 15:15

If I want a 4/4 bar of consecutive semi-quaver triplets, it takes four stages to break the semibreve rest into the necessary eight quaver rests. This gets a bit tedious - is there an option somewhere to do this in just one stage?

That only give triplet quavers, though - I'm wanting triplet semiquavers/16th notes. At the moment I have to:
1. highlight the semibreve rest and press 4 , to give 2 quaver rests, 1 crotchet rest and 1 minim rest;
2. highlight the crotchet rest and press 4 to give 2 more quaver rests;
3. repeat step 1;
4. repeat step 4.

Only then can I select all and press Ctrl+3. I just wondered if I was missing a more streamlined way of creating the appropriate rests.
