Bug(?) when setting triplets

NAMENLOS
Hi all,

as I'm new to the list first of all: thanks for the great software. I seem to
be incompatible to all type of music typesetting on Linux except MScore, so
that's definitely without competition for me.
I seem to have stumbled on a bug, either in the program or my head.
I want to typeset triplets with a rest in the middle. No big deal: create a
1/8 or 1/4 note, press Ctrl+3 and insert another 1/16 or 1/8 note at the end
of the triplet. Looks nearly perfect (I'd like the beam to cross the rest and
connect start and end of the triplet). Except when I'm trying to set another
triplet directly after the first one. Then something like [0] occurs: the end
of the first triplet gets connected to the start of the second one. As I
can't set the beam properties of notes in triplets (well, I can try, but
MScore ignores this), there seems to be no possibility to disconnect the two
notes, which makes them look like they belong together while they indeed
belong to different triplets. Additionally all by the first triplet in such a
sequence loose they brace. There's only a 3 printed above them without the
brace, which makes them look even more strange (and I tend to overlook such
triplets while playing).
So is this a bug in MScore or am I missing something here. If it's me, what
would be the correct way to typeset these types of notes.

Regards
Markus

Its a bug in mscore. Tuplets need special handling in misc places which is not
complete implemented.
The current SVN head version handles tuplets a lot better. Normal notes and tuplet
notes are not beamed automatically. Its also now possible to override the autobeamer
for tuplet notes. Right clicking on a tuplet number or bracket now offers a
tuplet property dialog. One property is to switch brackets on/off/automatic.
Whats missing is a special edit mode for tuplet brackets to allow move of endpoints
(changing the slope).
