Copying figures does not include velocity and dynamics


I am copying figures (using the span tool), and I noticed that only the actual figures are copied, but other parameters (like velocity and/or dynamics) are not. Is this intentional? Is there perhaps a way to instead copy figures with all their parameters?

That's indented. Editing works per parameter.

It would be difficult to guess which parameters the user might want to include, because they all influence output in some way.

You can however add a partial copy of the whole phrase to the embedded library with the span tool and Command-E. Then you can drag that phrase anywhere you want.

The next update by the way will improve Command-E to better work with single-parameter phrases vs. multi-parameter ones. Currently it always copies all parameters, so you can't easily grab an interesting span from the Harmony parameter, for example.

I see. I appreciate that it is also highly useful to copy just individual parameters around, but copying full parameter sets is useful too! 

Thanks for the suggested workaround. That will do for now.
