Musescore incorrectly notates tuplets in odd meters

• May 22, 2022 - 01:33

In a bar of 5/8, a 3:5 tuplet should be notated as quarter-notes/crochets, as per Elaine Gould's authoritative work on notation "Behind Bars". Instead, it notates them as eighth notes. This needs to be corrected for professional notation, or there needs to be an option to allow for users to specifically define what note length tuplet notes appear as.

Screenshots attached below of MuseScore's incorrect notation as well as Elaine Gould's "Behind Bars" pages relevant to tuplet notation.
