I don’t know whether it’s something to do with my input device (or my own input ‘style’), but if I try to ‘rectangle’ a selection (otherwise known as ‘rubber-banding’), it only works if I start a certain distance from the staff lines (1.5 spaces?). Any closer, and I just select the entire bar’s contents.
Is there a way to ensure that I trigger a selection rectangle, or to reduce the distance outside the staff at which a click will select everything in it?
E.g. In the example picture, clicking, holding and dragging inside the red lines will NOT produce a selection rectangle, but just select the bar’s contents.
