I've been a "Speedy Entry" kind of person most of my life, and I am trying to force myself to learn Simple Entry as a way to "change things up" a little.  Anyway, I have run across an obstacle that I'm wondering if some "Simple Entry Aficionado" can help me with.  If I'm on the last beat in a measure (simple time), how can I get a triplet that looks like a quarter note and an eighth note under a triplet.  In Speedy I would create the triplet with the eighth note and change the first eighth note to a quarter note, then it would work.  Simple won't let me do that.  I can create that rhythm earlier in the measure, but not on the final beat.  Is there a way or a setting to achieve this in Simple Entry?  Thanks!

There are several ways to enter a tuplet.

You can find a tutorial here:

With your preferred way of creating a tuplet you can end a measure with a tuplet - if you de-select {Check for Extra Notes}.

 

If you do not like to de-select {Check for Extra Notes}, you must create the tuplet in another way.

Try e. g. Simple Entry via computer keyboard.

This is not specifically to help me with tuplets, but since I mostly use Speedy, I have found it useful in Simple Entry to turn off "Check for Extra Notes."
