Studio One Artist 3.5 possible bug when dragging multiple samples into Impact

Gif of current behavior:

When I select multiple files in the browser and drag them onto a pad in Impact, they each go to their own pad. This is expected. However, when I hold shift while dropping the files onto a pad, the dialog changes from "Load samples" to "Add samples", which implies what I thought the behavior would be - loading all the samples into the one pad as separate velocity layers. This would be rather useful, and it appears as though this was the intended behavior, but it's not working.

Any time that you drag multiple samples over to Impact, they will be assigned to different pads.  If you wish to import multiple samples into a pad, as separate velocity layers, you will need to hold down the shift key and drag the samples in one sample at a time.

Ok, so then it appears this could be a feature request. Holding shift when dragging in multiple samples at once should layer them all onto one pad all at once, in order to save the extra steps needed to drag them in one at a time. That is what I expected the behavior to be because of the tooltip, which changes from "Load samples" to "Add samples" when holding shift.
