Applying shortcut beam designations to multiple notes causes error.

Many shortcuts (e.g. shift-s for staccato) works when you select either groups of notes or ctrl-click multiple notes. I have created a shortcut for several beam properties (Beam Start for one). When I select more than one note in any manner I get the following error.
No Note or rest selected:
Please select a single note or rest and retry operation.
If I do the same thing and double click the icon in the palette it works as expected (as with staccato).

See discussion here:


This is probably related somehow and should definitely be fixed at the same time. You cannot undo a short cut beam properties but you can undo palette beam properties.

When I first reported this, Marc asked me to list any other shortcuts that do not work properly. I haven't tested every shortcut, but in my normal use of MuseScore I have found no others that do not work correctly.
