Mute Events command works differently in C12 vs N11

I’ve created a macro in Nuendo 11 so I can select a range and mute the range selected as follows:

Edit - Split Range
Edit - Mute Events

However, when I make the same macro in Cubase 12, it does not mute the selected range. I am wondering if this is a preference setting that I missed or if Cubase handles this differently (like does not automatically select the split event to mute). Let me know if I am missing something. Or if there is a better way to accomplish this, as this is vital to my workflow.
