Notating Triplets

• May 9, 2024 - 07:50

How can I notate a triplet?
Every time I try, Musescore creates triplet semi quavers with rests instead, when I tap the triplet button at the top. Super weird behaviour.

Is there a way to make the quavers in my attached image into triplets?

You have to create the triplet first (empty, with rests) and add the notes into it. When you create a triplet in a place where there are already notes, it overwrites those existing notes to write the (blank!) triplet in their place ... similar to what would happen if you had typed some other kind of note on top of existing notes.
