I want to just copy and paste that 12 bars so that I have 24 bars.
I zoom way in with the magnifier in order to put the cursor right at the beginning of the 12 bars.
I then have to scroll forever to get to the end of those 12 bars and finish the selecting/copying.
I wish after clicking at the beginning of the 12 bars I could zoom out, then scroll over, then zoom in again at the end and finish the selecting. Is there a way to do that? Or, alternatively, is there an easier way to do precise copy and pastes?
but the one thing that I’ve not found a really convenient way of doing, is to jump from one end of a selected section to the other (without losing the selected region). Zooming in and out with the mouse wheel works well, but sometimes I think it would be useful to just be able to press a key to jump from the start of the selection to the end of the selection (like how you can use the Home and End keys to jump from the start to the end of the project).
A cursor and a selection can’t co-exist, so you mean e.g. RIGHT moves the cursor to the end of the selection and removes it, then some other modifier with LEFT moves the cursor to what was the start of the selection before you pressed RIGHT?
As of now, you could Edit > Region Save then Edit > Region Restore (not too bad with shortcuts).
I would do it by CTRL + I to split the selection, then double-click before LEFT or RIGHT does what you want.
