Nested Complex Tuplets

• May 8, 2024 - 19:43

Hello, I am recreating a score and I am trying to nest a 3:5 tuplet inside the last part of a 9:8 tuplet in 2/2 time. I cannot figure out how to do this because there is no rest that is equivalent to 5 eighth notes and I cannot copy and paste into a tuplet.
I have attached a screenshot of the measure I am trying to recreate.

Well, I can tell you how to do a 3:5 tuplet, but I don't know whether that will help you with the complex tuplet you've described. *crossing fingers*

Select (or create) a blank measure. Right-click the measure and click on Measure Properties (or Bar Properties, if you have the UK version). Set the Actual Duration to be 5/8. Select the "whole measure rest" and press Ctrl+3 to turn it into a triplet. Now copy that triplet elsewhere.

Thing is, I don't know whether that will work if you paste it into the octuplet.
