It would be great if the Merge command ("G" shortcut key by default) would apply to Range Selections of Instrument Parts, Patterns, Audio Events, or Audio Parts, similar to the way that Mute Events does. Something like the following workflow
1. make a range selection of a portion of two overlapping Instrument Parts
3. If snap to grid is enabled, snap to grid is temporary disabled
4. events/parts are split if needed from the bounds of the range selection, then what's within is selected and merged
5. Snap to grid is returned to the original setting
The reasoning behind steps #3 and #5 is so as to not create more overlapping events due to the Merge functions "rounding up" behavior when snap to grid is enabled.
