3-quarter time signature

How do you get three quarter time? When I change the time signature to 3/4 I would expect to see 3 notes per measure but I still see 4?

Four bars of 4/4 :-

Five bars of 3/4 :-

Could you be looking at the snap-to grid lines? (4 per note in these images)?

Yes, thanks. I have found the dividing notes into 12ths solves this.
