I would prefer note selection on shift right arrow…highlights… shift left… does not deselect notes but highlights left of starting point. Is this a deep design thing that has to remain?
What you’re describing is exactly what happens on my out-of-the-box Dorico installation. Shift-Right extends the selection to the right, Shift-Left extends it to the left. Neither deselects any notes. What would you like to be different?
Pietzcker, I think joojoo1234 looks for a way of deselecting notes with just key commands.
Sounds like it, although he/she did write “I would prefer…shift left does not deselect”.
I agree that that could be an interesting option to have Shift+Arrow keys behave as one is used to from programs like Word/Writer or Excel/Calc.
interesting I understood the opposite:
I would prefer note selection on shift right arrow…highlights…
[this he/she finds ok]
shift left… does not deselect notes
[this he/she is dissappointed that it does not deselect notes]
highlights left of starting point. Is this a deep design thing that has to remain?
