In 6/8 time, a dotted quarter is tyically considered "the beat", and two beats are present per measure. In this configuration, it is very unusual to see an actual notated triplet, as three adjacent 8th notes are played as triplets (since the beat is a dotted quarter). In NWC, the important thing to know about measure alignment is that the sum of the durations in a measure must be equal in all staff parts (for that measure). As long as you follow this rule, all parts should line up. If you are having trouble, feel free to send us a sample in an email attachment, and we will review it.
