Speedy entry, ctrl-1 to bring up tuplet definition window, select 3 quarter notes in the space of 2 quarter notes, enter half note followed by quarter note. Works in Printmusic 06, I assume same in other programs except Notepad. Which are you using?

or: (Fritz method does work in Finale)
(I'm guessing control on Windows is the same as alt on Mac)
Speedy entry
Alt 3 (to tell finale you intend to enter triplets 3:2
5 (to tell Finale the basic unit of the triplet is a quarter note)
Left arrow (to take the cursor back over the first note)
6 (to make the first note into a half note (this will not change the triplet definition which has already been set))
5( to make the final quarter note.)

This decription looks time consuming, but for simple rhythms like this, with paractice, it is much quicker than navigating the db that opens with Control 1

Thanks for your help, both work fine, though I prefer peters suggestion. How can this be done in simple entry?

I never use simple entry, even the souped up new version is too slow for me. Sorry

In simple, enter the first note as a quarter note, hit 9 to turn it into a triplet, then enter the same note again as if you you were going to tie them, then enter the last note. Then back up and delete the middle note, then back up and change the first note to a half note. There's probably a more elegant way, but this works fine.

In Simple Entry

- Enter the half note.
- With the half note selected, choose Simple > Simple Edit Commands > Change Duration > Create User defined Tuplet (there's a keyboard shortcut for this, but I don't know what it is on Windows. Maybe alt+9?).
- In the dialog that opens set the tuplet to three quarters in the space of two quarters. If you have a lot of the same tuplets to enter, check the option "save as default": you can always change it back later.
- Now enter the quarter note.

Yes, if you're going to be entering a lot of these, Simple Entry is going to be handy. As Michael said, enter the first note, press alt-9, set it to 3 quarters in the space of 2, and save it as the default.

From now on you can enter the first note and simply hit 9 to set up the tuplet - one button per tuplet.

Or if you have consecutive tuplets, you can press ctrl-9 and start entering them consecutively without setting each one up.

If you prefer to use this method, you can speed it up a little by doing this:

Enter a quarter
Press 9
Alt-6 (to change it to a half)
Arrow forward
Enter your quarter
