Request: Allow batch editing of note beginning or endings in sequencer overlay

In the sequencer overlay, it is possible to batch edit the velocity of multiple notes.  I would like to see the same functionality for note beginnings and endings.

So there are two separate but related improvements I'm requesting: I would like to be able to use arrow keys or other keyboard shortcuts to nudge beginnings and endings rather than having to drag them.  And I would like to be able to do this to multiple selected notes simultaneously.

It would also be nice to have the same control over note beginnings and endings in the randomization dialogue that we have over velocities.  Right now, there is a % randomization of note beginnings and endings, but no way to set the minimum or maximum range or force them to a single value the way we can for velocities.

The reason this would be beneficial is because there are many VST libraries that require playing a little before the beat because of sampled legato transitions or "pre-roll" effects, particularly vocal and string libraries but it could apply to others as well.  In those cases, it is usually recommended to start each note before the beat.  But right now this is very tedious to do in Notion and requires exporting to a DAW first.
