How does chord selection actually work?

This has something that has long bothered me… sometimes when I select a chord (by clicking) it selects all the notes, sometimes just one. I’ve never been able to figure out the logic here,

If you click the stem the whole chord will be selected. If you’re zoomed out enough that the mouse could theoretically grab two notes in a chord simultaneously, it’ll do so. If you’re a bit more zoomed in and don’t click the stem, a single note will be selected.
