Slurs/lines etc. - what difference does "edit mode" actually make?
The manual explains what edit mode is supposed to do for slurs/hairpins/other lines etc. - but from what I'm seeing all those things work even without entering edit mode - just selecting a single element then using TAB to select a particular grip handle allows you to make all the same modifications.
The only thing the command seems to do is automatically select the "end" grip handle, and change the text in the status bar to say "Edit mode". From a brief look through the code it doesn't seem any of the cursor key operations etc. are treated differently by such an element whether it's in edit mode or not either.
Is there a specific example of an operation that only works when such an element is in edit mode?
