Tuplet tool

This tool lets you create, edit, and adjust the positions of tuplets. (The word tuplet describes a class of irregular note divisions such as triplets, quintuplets, or septuplets.) You can use it to describe the visual appearance of the tuplet (whether or not it has a bracket, for example) as well as its rhythmic definition (how many quarter notes in the space of a half note, for example).

For information regarding tuplets in scores with linked parts, see Tuplets in linked parts.

You can predefine the default appearance of tuplets when you first create them (with the Simple Entry, Speedy Entry or HyperScribe tools) including whether or not a slur or bracket appears, at what height it appears, and so on. To do so, CTRL-click the Tuplet tool; Finale displays the Tuplet Definition dialog box, where you can specify how you want new tuplets to look. To predefine more advanced tuplets, see To enter a duplet, septuplet or other tuplet.

Tip: Change Tuplet settings over a selected region with the Selection tool. Choose Tuplets from the Change Submenu of the Utilities menu.
