I have a glissando that was imported via a MIDI file. I want to select all notes except the first, then I’ll add a glissando mark. I’m drawing a box around the notes that I want to select (see first screenshot), but no matter what, Dorico also selects the first note—which I’m NOT selecting.
How do I get Dorico to respect my selections?
If there’s no way to do so, I’d have to classify this, respectfully, as a bug.
The reason the first note is getting selected is because you are also selecting the beam: when you click on the beam, all of the notes in the beamed group are selected, which is a nice shortcut (another nice shortcut is clicking on the stem to select all the noteheads on the stem).
