Difficulty notating some triplet 8th notes.

I recently purchased a new iPad Pro 11 inch and an Apple Pencil 2, expressly for notating music.  In these early stages of using SP5, I'm cautiously optimistic. 

I attempted to email the SP5 excerpt-example to myself, but didn't seem to receive the email. So I made phone photos.  I'm not sure about a proper way to ask my questions, so I will list my issues.  I've photographed 4 measures. 

1)  3rd beat of measure 1 -  I'd like the B and Eb in the treble cleff to be notated as half notes.  Similarly,  I'd like the 1st beat of treble clef  measure 2  (Bb and Eb)  to be notated as quarter notes.

2)  3rd and 4th beats of measure 3 are frustrating because then I attempt to make a tied 8th note triplet in the 4th beat, the software seems to make the 3rd beat a triplet.

    The email issue is being looked into as replied here. Since it's a coincidence that it seems to have occurred recently, we'd also like to know if you recently updated your iOS version, as well as whether or not the Mail app itself is working.

    Regarding notating the example you helpfully illustrated, this is covered in our help chapter denoted as the Voices (or Layers) feature, and is also illustrated here: http://forums.symphonypro.net/discussion/comment/2499#Comment_2499

    Thanks for your reply.  I'll have to spend some time working with the Voice (2nd voice).  I do (think I)  see the logic in your designation of 1st, 2nd ,  3rd etc.  voices.

    The PDF of the score I attempted to email  appeared in my gmail inbox, apparently yesterday.  I'll  do some more experimenting with this function.   The only thing I had done was  to look at the Settings on my iPad Pro to check the version of Updates.  I wonder if this triggered something.
  • I ran a few tests on different devices:

    A) SP6 Beta 5.4.41 on iPad Pro GEN 3 12.9 inch iOS 12.2
    Successfully sent and received an SP project from within SP via my icloud.com account.  

    B) SP6 Beta 5.4.41 on a Pad Pro GEN 2 12.9  iOS 12.4 developer beta.
    Successfully sent and received an SP project from within SP via my icloud.com account.  

    C) A student of mine running the release version of SP5 on iPad Pro GEN 3 12.9 iOS 12.2
    Successfully emailed me an SP project via her 3rd party hosted email service for her www.axeleather.com domain.

    Glad to have your verification that the email issue isn't problematic on your side. Nonetheless, this indicates that  version 5 also ought to be working, based on what we understand about the issue thus far.
