When the mouse pointer hovers over the velocity controller lane, it gets changed to another tool (the draw tool). Apparently, this is not a biggie, because the user can hold down the ALT key to switch to the object selection tool. However, in the event of a multiple selection operation, the only course of action you can take is hold the click button down and then drag to create a selection rectangle. Unfortunately, holding down COMMAND (ctrl) or SHIFT while ALT is also pressed will not allow multiple selection by clicking the velocities one by one.
The following example is to show that selecting multiple velocities (notes) is not possible.
Please reverse the current behavior so that when the mouse pointer hovers over the controller lane, it stays unchanged. Thank you.
