Apologies if this has been addressed: I'm trying enter a quintuplet: 5 quarters in the space of 4, beginning with a 1/2 note. When I try, it pushes extra beats into the next measure. I had a similar problem with quarter-note triplets mixed with eighths which was resolved by using a MIDI keyboard for entry, but that seems to have no effect here. Any insight? Thanks!

Here we go on another round with tuplets.  I use Simple Entry with the mouse.

In 4/4 time, click in a half note.  Press ALT/OPTION? 9 and choose 5 quarters in the space of 4 quarters.  Your tuplet will be formed with three quarter rests filling out the measure.  Simply click over the rests with quarter notes.

I will leave the several other techniques to others.

Jack,

When you make a tuplet Finale assumes the first note you enter is what the tuplet is made up of, so when you enter a half note to begin it guesses wrong. Start with a quarter instead of a half, then after the other notes are entered change the first quarter to a half.

Yes, thanks to both replies. That is in fact what I did, enter a quarter note 1st then change to a 1/2, but it is still pushing extra notes into the next bar?

Fill in all of the quarter notes, before you change the first pair to a half.

And sometimes, with complex tuplets, extra rests get stuck out at the end. Just delete them.

Simple Entry, QWERTY keyboard, numberpad. That's my system, and I'm stickin' to it.

Charles's way is the best with Simple entry--no need to change a quarter to a half or delete anything extra.

With Speedy entry, type Ctrl-1 and select 5 quarters in the space of 4. Then enter the half note and three quarter notes.

Thanks, yes Charles's way seemed to get rid of the weirdness.
