Showing Note/Chord properties in Inspector for range selection
Marvelous as the Inspector is in most ways, there is one usability issue that keeps cropping up: the fact that when you select a range of notes (as opposed to multi-select of individual notes), the Inspector sees this as a non-homogenous selection and thus gives you only the generic Element properties. So to see Note or Chord properties, you need to then right click a note and choose Select / All Similar Elements in Range Selection. This is non-obvious, and it feels like an unnecessary extra step given that when we select a range, it is most likely notes / chord that we are interested in.
What if we modified the Inspector to still show Note & Chord properties for range selections (and of course, apply them only to notes and chords within the selection)? It seems this would be a very useful usability optimization.
If for some reason this is felt to be not "clean", what about adding a "Select notes only" button to the Inspector that displays when a range is selected, the effect of which would be the same as if you right clicked a note and chose Select / All Similar Elements in Range Selection?
