"Tuplet" includes any ratio change, such as duplets, quintuplets etc.

You need a Start Triplet marker before and and End one after the notes
that are to be tripletized.

The one I use mostly is the Toggle Triplet one, which alternates
inserting start triplet and end triplet markers.

I don't know what LilyPond's default is :( It will be in LilyPond's docs

What is the command you are using to "put in the directive \3"? If it is
one created by yourself, look to see if you have put the LilyPond in the
prefix or postfix field, and if it is a Note directive or a Chord
directive. If not right click on the menu item and choose help to find
the name of the command.
