How to efficiently enter lots of triplets? (or tuplets in general)
I have a long passage of music that's all in quaver triplets - I know how to enter one triplet, but every time I've finished entering each one it jumps out of triplet mode and now into the half the duration of the triplet, so I have to remember to keep typing 5 ctrl+3 after every 3 notes. Further if I forget and accidentally enter a large section in regular quavers I can't see how to convert them to triplets (which would be OK as a way to enter a large number at once, though not quite ideal).
Is there a way to just "lock in" the current step-mode duration as 1/3rd of a crotchet (1/4 note) and make it stay there until I'm done?
(BTW in the current example I'm working on the triplets are actually a measured tremolo, i.e. each one is a repeated chord, so it would be even more efficient just to enter the whole passage in 1/4 notes the apply some tool to split each one into repeated triplets, not sure if there's a way to do that easily, perhaps with a plugin?)
