"Play with right hand" in Master palette

This one will be hard to explain because the behavior is not consistent and may be difficult to reproduce, but I've seen it multiple times.

When I open and use the Master palette for the first time in a session (I say this because once I get it to work right it keeps doing so in that session) and I select Symbols, Keyboard techniques (with the default Bravura font) and click the Play with right hand bracket (or the Play with right hand (end) bracket) onto a selected note in the score (and optionally close the Master palette) the brackets are dropped almost onto the selected note, so I want to change their X offset slightly. So I click on a bracket to select it. It is indeed selected and editable in the Inspector, but it does not turn blue; that visual indication is lacking. When I change the X offset, a "copy" of the bracket is moved, and is blue, but the original bracket remains black and in place. Yet they are really the same bracket. Try deleting them and see what happens; you can delete the blue one but not the black one until you have deleted the blue one. Then the black one becomes properly editable.

I tried it with the Play with left hand brackets and this did not happen, but it may have been influenced by what I had already done with the Play with right hand brackets. So I cannot say without further testing whether the same issue occurs with them.

It might be that the Master palette is dropping a double instance of the bracket into the score. What I have observed would be consistent with that, but I've not taken the necessary steps to prove it.
