Applying the augmentation dot, for example, on a range of notes fails
S5 - Suggestion
I suppose in any score this happens:
We have a row of consecutive bars and in each bar we have one or more pairs of a a note and a rest of same length. We select a range of notes by using the shift method, then toggle the duration dot on. The first note gets the dot but the rest get something odd, as seen in the attached example.

If you select the notes individually with [Ctrl] it works. Selecting everything also selects the rests and I'm not sure what the output should look like then.
So what should happen in your opinion?
My concept of a score is that the rests are like background space, and the notes are the meaningful content. So the composer acts with the intention of changing the notes, not the background.
In the example it would mean that the selected four notes get a duration dot each and the rests get adjusted accordingly.
We have to generalize this too. When we apply any action to a range selection that contains rests, we primarily change the notes and the rests get just adjusted as becomes necessary.
So not a bug but a feature request.
