[Trunk] Not all selected notes moved upon drag move

S1 - Blocker

1. Open attached score.
2. Grab-select all the chords.
3. Hold shift, click on the third chord and move the mouse up or down.

Expected result: All the notes selected move.
Actual result: Only the notes from the left to the note clicked on (third chord) are moved.

Workaround: Grab at the fourth (last) chord to move all of them.

Using MuseScore 2.0 Nightly Build (4275) - Windows XP SP3.

Actually, it's worse than you've reported, and also affects MS 1.0. Open up the Mussorgsky sample score "Promenade_Example", shift-drag select the entire first line, and still holding shift, drag up and sideways. This will drag all the bar lines, clefs, time sigs, etc diagonally, along with the notes. Ouch!

Yes, you're right about it dragging other objects - it doesn't do it diagonally for me though (just vertically), and it didn't grab bar lines either.

I did notice something else though - the stem direction changes depending on the note's position on the stave. Should it?

In 1.0 I can't _not_ make it select bar lines and move them. Note that when I saved and reloaded the file, the bar lines were back where they should be.

Yes, the stem position is always depenedant on its position in the staff. Middle B is the crossover point.

I just wondered whether the stem direction would be preserved (if you set a particular one by flipping it) when dragging notes.

Works as expected in 4.0.1 (including retaining stem directions)
