Did you set this previously? It says group the tuplets in quarter (1 / 4) note groups which is smaller than the grouping you are indicating. The correct one for a 4 quarter note (one whole note) grouping would be:
\set tupletSpannerDuration = #(ly:make-moment 1 1)
meaning whole note (1/1) groupings.

I took me a while to figure out how that related to the tuplets I wanted.

I would guess there is a way to reset tupletSpannerDuration to get it back out if the way but I haven't looked that up yet. Otherwise once you use it in a score you will have to keep changing it for each new tuplet group size.

Read at
if you want to learn the opposite of \set.

My concern is not how to unset but what values of tupletSpannerDuration will achieve the desired effect. Also I didn't say the answer to my concern was difficult just that I hadn't looked it up yet.

Now that I have researched it I still don' t know whether unsetting tupletSpannerDuration will put things back to normal or what value of tupletSpannerDuration will accomplish this. I would like to see more about possible values of properties in the internals section of the doc.
