How does one change music from 4/4 with triplets to 12/8 without triplets (and vice versa)? Example of what I would want to change attached.

Are you saying that you already have it in triplets and you want to change it to 12/8, or you want to know how to change back and forth between the two?

The music has already been entered in triplets. I want to convert it to 12/8 without the triplets.

Something akin to the Convert Simple Time to Compound Time plugin in Sibelius.

It can be done but it takes a couple of steps. Change the music to 12/8 then using the filter clear tuplet definitions. Then re-bar and everything should look right.

Nice. Thanks Bill!

Curious how one might go the reverse way (12/8 to 4/4) although I don't need it at the moment.

You can do the first two steps in either order and, if you make sure that Rebar Music is deselected in the Time Signature dialog box, it'll be done in two steps. Doing it in reverse order doesn't seem possible, though.
