Correct duplets in compound time signatures

When using duplets in compound time signatures the duplets show as crotchets (1/4 notes) where the convention for this notation is as two quavers (1/8th notes).

For example in 6/8 where a duplet is required over the first 3 quavers (1/8th notes) if I click on the dotted crotchet and choose 2 from the duplet it shows as 2 crotchets over the first half of the bar where it should be 2 quavers.

Any chance this can be fixed?

        That's not correct! Mark is correct - a triplet is "cheating" by putting 3 where there should only be 2; a duplet is when there are 2, where there should be 3. Standard usage is this way. How you have it in noteflight - 4, 1/8th notes in 6/8 is a quartolet.
