I like tuxguitar better than Guitar Pro because it's easier to use. But I have a problem to create a measure like this. Please have look at the link of the picture.

Can any one give me a hint on how to create a measure like this. Thanks.

Here is the result according to your suggestion. But there are so many rests are added and not looks as good as the original one.

Did I do something wrong or there is a better solution? Thanks

No, as i see, on the new screenshoots, you have only 1 note using the second voice..

Lets start saying that you'll not same exactly "graphics" rendering, since your picture have joined the voices instead of show the rests.. but however, you can reduce these rests.
( in your poicture you have a lot of rests, because their duration )

You have to try edit first voice 1, and then voice 2.
In a new measure, try this:

* make sure your time signature is 4/4
* Select voice 1.
* Select Eighth duration

And do something like this ( "R" = Rest )

|---------0---------1---------3---------3---|
|----R----0----R----3----R----1----R----1---|
|-----------------------------2---------2---|
|-------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------|

So this is the voice 1.
now, Select the voice 2, and add these notes.
|-------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------|
|----2--------------------------------------|
|--------------3------0--2---------2--------|
|-------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------|

duration of "3" is "eighth dotted"
duration of "0" is "sixteenth"
other notes are quarters..

Then the result should looks like this:
|---------0---------1---------3---------3---|
|----R----0----R----3----R----1----R----1---|
|----2------------------------2---------2---|
|--------------3------0--2---------2--------|
|-------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------|

You still will see rests of voice 1, make sure thes are "eight rests"..
if you see them sixteenth as in your screenshot, just click the first rest, and change it's duration to eighth

Try copy the tabs to a text editor and you should see them formated well...
