Brackets don't entirely cover tuplets

S4 - Minor

1. Create a piano score in 4/4.
2. Create triplets based on crotchet.
3. Add quavers to each tuplet.

(if you fill bar, right-click for 'Stem Properties' and click 'bracket')

Desired result: Bracket should reach both ends of the tuplet note heads.
Actual result: Bracket reaches one side of the tuplet note heads, but only up-to the stems on the other.

See attached score for example.

Using MuseScore 1.0.0 pre-release 2 (3949) and Mac 10.4.11.

According to page 195 of 'Behind Bars':

"A bracket should extend from the left-hand edge of the first notehead or rest, to the right-hand edge of the final notehead or rest."

Thanks! Nearly there :).

Looking at the pages in 'Behind Bars', the edges of the brackets seem inconsistent in the different examples. They either align with the stem, or go slightly past.

In MuseScore, they are either slightly past, or slightly short. I don't know if the bracket should align with the edge of the stem/notehead, or if it should clear past them. See the attached score - produced in 1.3.

Using MuseScore 2.0 Nightly Build (4303743) - Mac 10.7.5.
