Applying playing technique to selected notes

I Control/Command clicked different notes and want to apply a playing technique to them, but Dorico deselects them all and applies it to the first note only. Presumably this is a known thing, but shouldn’t that be changed? Universally in UI design you can do an operation on whatever particular elements are selected.

This is a known limitation. With the playing technique selected on the first note, you can Alt-click on other notes to duplicate.

Dan you’re such a help on this forum, thank you! That’s a great trick.
