Hi there,

Thanks for all your work on LilyPond!

When notes in a tuplet are slurred, tuplet numbers can collide with 
articulations that appear above notes. When notes in a tuplet aren’t slurred, 
tuplet numbers appear above articulations. Here’s an example that illustrates 
the behavior:

\version "2.22.1"
   \tuplet 3/2 4 { a'8 a'-+ a' a'( a'-+ a') }

It seems like the vertical position of the tuplet numbers should be the same.

(I also tried this using the latest version from the Git repo, and the behavior 
is the same.)

All the best,


Thank you for your well-informed report. This is actually a known issue:


Basically, the script stops reacting to the tuplet bracket because it thinks it will be outside of the slur and the bracket will be inside, as if the slur were up. I once tried to limit that to the case where the directions are the same, but got stuck in cyclic dependencies.

Best regards,
