look under 'tuplets' in the help menu.

- create: an eighth-note (D) and (A)
- select (click on): the top note
- push: control+3
you will then have an eighth-note triplet on the first beat followed by two eighth-note triplet rests
- simply input two (D)s and (A)s where the rests are and you should then have a triplet.
--You then have to do the same thing for the next set of triplets.

1) What Gary said above.
2) What Sibelius says below. [Hit F1 to bring up references; or select help - then references. Search Tuplets (2.29)]

Creating tuplets quickly
* Input or select the first note (only) of the tuplet, which
must be of the unit length of the tuplet (see box).
For instance, if you want a triplet with a total length of a
half note (minim), the first note you input must be a
quarter note (crotchet).
* Type Ctrl+3 or X3 for a triplet - which, let's face it, is
what you're probably after - or Ctrl+2-9 or X2-9 for
anything from a duplet to a nonuplet
* The tuplet will appear, with the correct number of rests.
Add the other notes in the normal way.
The tuplet has the format and bracket options last set on
the Create > Tuplet dialog (see Creating tuplets
slowly below).
Creating tuplets slowly
* Input or select the first note (only) of the tuplet, which must be of the unit length of the tuplet
* Choose Create > Tuplet
* Type in any number or ratio, as complex as you like (e.g. 13, or 99:64)
* Click Number to write just a single number (or the first number of the ratio), Ratio to write a
ratio (e.g. 5:3), Ratio+note to write e.g. 5:3x, and None to write no number at all
* By default, Sibelius creates tuplets with Auto Bracket
switched on; this means that the triplet bracket disappears
if there is a beam joining exactly the same notes as the
bracket would join, and if the tuplet is at the beam end of
the notes. If you want explicitly to specify that your tuplet
should or should not be bracketed, choose one of the other
* Switch on Full duration if you want the bracket to extend
up to the next note/rest (see box on next page)
* Click OK; the tuplet will appear and you can input the
remaining notes as normal.
