The selection macros "Select Lowest" and "Select Highest" do not work as expected.

The selection options should do exactly what they state; "Select all lowest/highest notes" within a midi clip.

However, they seem to randomly exclude some notes; even within the same octave or the same pitch.

So, here is my feature request:

A selection macro that literally selects every lowest or highest note regardless of "musically meaningful parts" or "reasonable result from a musical point of view".

If *ALL* low notes are selected then the user would have the ability to copy *ALL* low notes at once. Then the user could further edit *ALL* of the low notes to their desired "musically meaningful parts".

I agree, and I would like this as well. An option would be to have an entry in the keyboard shortcuts for it, so a "select all lowest notes" and "select all highest notes". The advantage of that would be that we can then create very handy macros where we can delete all lowest notes with one command for example.

But please, make the whole request shorter, you can't expect anyone to read through all of it. That may cause less people to vote this up.
