Steps to reproduce bug
1. Create new score in 4/4
2. Select a whole measure rest
3. Notes > Tuplet > Triplet

Expected behavior: 3 half notes (in the space of 2 half notes)

Actual behavior: 3 quarter notes (in the space of 2 half notes)

MuseScore version: r. 2605. (Bug not present in 0.9.5)

(Operating System: Windows XP)

This formula probably needs more research, but off the top of my head the following seems right.

Let r1 and r2 be the two positive integers that make up the ratio.
(For example 3:2 would correspond to r1 = 3 and r2 = 2)

Let TD be the Total Duration of the triplet
(Our example is a whole note so the full duration is 1)

Let ND be the nominal duration
(In our example the nominal duration should be half notes (1/2) but it is inaccurately displaying as quarter notes (1/4) )

Formula: ND = TD / r2

Apparently there still be an error with full measure duration because the fraction is not reduced.
For 4/4, we got a full measure triplet of 3 quarters notes instead of 3 halves because the input fraction was 4/4 and not 1/1.
It's fixed in r2608.

In r. 2615 the resulting tuplet has space for only 1 half note instead of the expected 3 half notes.

Somehow i managed to break the code again. Rev. 2616 works better.
The "Other Tuplets" dialog in the current version only accepts a relation. The created tuplet is filled with rests of the longest possible duration.

Tested using r. 2620 nightly, Windows XP

 Status (old) fixed ⇒ active

Broken again in r2626.
Nothing happens if you select a whole note and press Ctrl + 3

It doesn't work for me if I'm in note entry mode. It does work if I'm not in note entry mode. (r. 2624 nightly, Windows XP).

The note entry case should also work now in rev. 2628
