Tuplets in 12/8
The piece "All I care About" from the musical Chicago is in 12/8 time. There are a few measures where there are "triplets" i.e. three dotted crotchets in the space of two. I know that musically this is equivalent to just writing three ordinary crotchets but I can see the reason for annotating it as "triplets" because that's how it sounds (or how it would sound if it were in 4/4 for instance).
In the attached file, the first measure is how it sounds and the second is how it appears in the original score. I have had to play about with the timings to get it to appear this way. Is there a way to make such triplets properly when in 12/8 time? Would it merit a feature request?
I found a way to do it by creating a dotted minim rest and then selecting it and going to the menu and using Notes -> Tuplets -> Other and making it Relation 3/2 and then entering them as dotted crotchets but shouldn't it create such a Tuplet just by clicking on the dotted minim and pressing [Ctrl] 3 or selecting Notes->Tuplets->Triplet?
