Editing fingering

If one selects a fingering to edit, the blinking cursor in the popover displays to the right of the pre-exiting fingering, so one has to delete the old fingering to correct it:

FIngering cursor A

On the other hand, if one then continues on with the spacebar or arrow keys either forward or backward, the preexisting fingering is highlighted in blue, so that it can be overwritten without using the delete key.

FIngering cursor b

I find the first behavior cumbersome, and would prefer highlighting on all occasions.

While the present behavior makes it easier to add on to a pre-existing fingering, this is the less common case, at least for me. Perhaps it is different for others or other instruments.

I neglected to mention that if one actually corrects a fingering and then applies the space bar to move on to the next fingering, the cursor now appears on the left side of the pre-existing fingering, which is now not highlighted. This latter behavior is perhaps least helpful.
