Adding here some of my experiences with arrow key navigation. I’ve attached a screen recording of me moving around with arrow keys. I’m using KeyCastr, so you can see in the lower left corner what keys I’m pressing. Sorry for the bad quality, I had to compress it quite a lot so I could post it in the forum.

In the chord in bar 2 it seems that arrow keys move visually rather than semantically. When G is selected and I press up, I would have expected that A flat would have been selected - even though Dorico has moved it to the right to avoid collisions. This is probably a design decision, so this is just feedback that at least for me it wasn’t what I intuitively expected.
The other ones seem more like bugs than design decisions. When I select Violin I’s E flat in bar 4, and press down, I would have expected Violin II’s C in bar 4 to be selected - not Violin I’s G in bar 5. When I select Violin II’s C in bar 4 and press right, I would have expected Violin II’s C in bar 5 to be selected, not Violin I’s E flat in bar 5.
My test file is also attached.
