Hi,


While engraving I came across the problem to display a simple triplet which consists of a quarter and an eighth note and it seems to be difficult. The default beaming is odd and using brackets leads to an error warning.
Do I completely miss something or is it a known problem?
thanks for a hint

As a musician I think I would rather see:


c2. ~ | \times 2/3 { c8~ c8 c8 } \times 2/3 { c'8 b c } d,4 ~ | \break

It just seems like it would be easier to count.
