The Add Selection button in the Secondary Toolbar

I’m a newbie to Dorico for iPad and I’m making real progress in understanding and using much of the available buttons in the various panels. But one that I haven’t yet figured out in spite of reading a number of times is the Add Selection button in the Secondary Toolbar. What does it do exactly? What would be an illustration of its use?


Welcome to the forum Mark! “Add to Selection” is a selection tool, that’s basically the equivalent of Cmd-clicking on a desktop computer: it builds up a multiple selection of each thing you touch whilst Add to Selection is active.

Similarly, “Extend Selection” is an equivalent to Shift-clicking to select everything between two points.
