Selecting multiple adjacent pedal markings

• Dec 12, 2018 - 02:14

Using Shift+Click to select multiple adjacent pedal markings does not seem to work; Command+Click does work to select multiple pedal markings one-by-one. I have a score that has pedal marking throughout; I want to make most of them invisible (and add a "simile" annotation); it would be nice to be able to click on the first pedal marking to be selected, then Shift+Click on the last one, and have them all be selected. This standard behavior does work for selecting other adjacent elements such as notes and measures.

Select a continuous range of measures, right click a pedal mark and use select>All similar elements in range selection to select all pedal marks at once. You can then press v or use the inspector to make them all invisible at once.

What if one could select one pedal marking (by clicking on it), and then select another pedal marking by shift+clicking on it, and all intervening pedal markings would be selected? (like you can do with notes alone rather than all elements in a measure, for example). Just a thought.

One other thing, you cannot only use click the first element and shift+click the last element to select only notes. Something else is required, like unchecking a LOT of things in the filter selector or clicking the "Notes" button in the inspector or using the right click menu as I described with the pedal marking. One other way is to press a combination that includes up or down arrows and all notes will have their pitches changed appropriately.

Selecting all notes is probably the most common select all feature users want, because there are so many things that you would want to do only with notes. For this reason, I can understand allowing for special case for notes.

You're right; clicking on a note, then shift-clicking on another note, does not quite select just the intervening notes. I guess what I was thinking about was that one can click on a note, control click on another note, and then do something like create a slur that encompasses all intervening notes. My mistake. However, regardless, it would be nice for the code to know that one has clicked on two elements that are alike, and then allow the shift+click functionality to work (similar to what you suggested in the bug report/feature request that you previously mentioned to me).
