Weird Alt+arrow behaviour

Hi, I’m trying to move a bunch of notes that are placed in the same rhythmic position with Alt+arrow but Dorico keeps erasing the notes that surround them, any suggestions?

Have you tried moving them in Engrave mode? Or with Insert mode turned on?

If you select one note at a time and move it, do you still get the same thing happening?
My guess is that the rhythmic space in between the selected notes is being treated as rests and when the notes move, these “rests” are moved with them and replace any notes that get in the way.

It’s because you made a non-contiguous selection. If you want to keep intermediate notes, engage chord mode (Q).
