4/4 time;  triplet defined as 3 quarters in the space of 2 quarters. Yet when I enter 3 quarter notes as a triplet I am left with only a single quarter rest. But I ignored the single quarter rest and tried it anyway.  But it won't allow me to enter 3 quarters notes even though I've selected using the triplet option. Goal is to enter 2 quarter note triplets.

Actually there are 3 Tuplet Tools:

 

1) The (general) Tuplet Tool on the Main Tool palette.

With this tool you can edit existing tuplets.

 

2) Both the Simple Entry Tool and the Speedy Entry Tool have a Tuplet (sub-)Tool, and both sub-tools have some convenient keyboard shortcuts.

With these two tools you can enter tuplets without leaving the Entry Tool.

There are several ways to enter a tuplet.

Depending on your actual way of entering tuplets you may not be able to end a measure with a tuplet without de-selecting Check For Extra Notes.

Thanks to all!  Yes the problem I was having was adding at the end of the measure. In my case the first tuplet would enter fine but the second one acted funny in different ways. I'll look this over as part of my never ending learning for this SW. Thanks again.

Brent, please look over my tutorial. It specifically deals with tuplets at the end of the measure.
