To highlight an area of a measure, or a whole measure, it is known that we need to click "not on a note" with the Selection tool, or to begin a Click-drag from outside the measure.
If I accidentally click a note with this tool, it highlights the note (see picture) but there doesn't appear to be anything you can do with that selection. Can't copy from it, move it, edit it, change it, paste to that location. Nothing.
I really need to know what the point is of this "functionality". It would be nice to not have to meticulously avoid notes when selecting a region. I'm getting older and sometimes my point-and-click is not 100% twitch free.
