Inconsistent behavior of tied notes (Drag Selection vs. Drag Slur)

This is just a little usability thing.
The behavior of tied notes is inconsistent.
When dragging a slur to cover a tied final note, the drag has to extend to the last notated note of the tie.
But when selecting a passage ending in a tied note, one must select the first note of the tie (or select the rest that follows).

Hi @indigo3301 , not sure I can confirm this: it works both with the start or the end of the tied note if using shift. And dragging it makes also no difference (in any case dragging the selection will include always the beginning of the tie):

(can you make an example?)

Also this is not always true, as it depends on the engraving options: for the slurs interaction with tied notes, there is an engraving option to decide the behaviour (that will also influence how much/less you need to drag):

here the dragging with the above settings active:
