Please make Q and W work also with multiple-note selections

• Jun 20, 2017 - 02:46

I remember I found this feature quite useful back in the old days of Rosegarden.

Currently Q and W work only on a single note, but not on fragments of music (selected with Shift+arrow) or many single notes (selected with Ctrl+leftclick).

Since a picture is worth a thousand words, please see the attachments for a two-thousands-words explanation of what I think it could be a useful behaviour of Q and W in case of Shift or Ctrl+click selection. Of course this can be applied to Shift+Q and Shift+W too.

Sorry for the fake selection box, but the screen capture feature seems unable to capture it.


Yes, in general, the ability to double or halve rhythms is a commonly requested feature, more complex to design end implement than you might think, but hopefully it will happen some day.
