I’ve been debating asking this question here, since I suspect it should be obvious to me, but: Can someone please tell me how the selection colors work in write mode and what they mean? I sometimes select multiple items, and they all turn orange. I sometimes select one item (like a dynamic) and as I increase the selection, several others turn blue. Sometimes when I select multiple notes on multiple staves, and all items light up orange, and I hit “shift >”, I get hairpins across all staves – but sometimes those hairpins only occur on some of the staves. Sometimes, when I select a single dynamic, several others light up blue, and if I then press “shift >” the hairpin appears on the staves with the blue dynamics even if I have not selected anything on those staves.
I have tried searching the online manual, as well as this forum, and others, to figure this out. What am I missing? Thank you!
