Currently we can select both Note and Part Automation (controller data) simultaneously. However we can't move/copy/duplicate the selection of both the Note and Part Automation data. We can only cut or delete it.

So I would like to request a feature where we are able to manually select both Note and Part Automation data and Move/Copy/Duplicate both simultaneously.

Additionally I would like to request a feature similar to Automation follows events related to Note events.

Case Study (Cubase)

Together with Incorporate Transform tool functions in range selection (selected range) this would save some time since you don't have to change to the Transform Tool when you have some notes selected.

Good idea! Was looking for something like this today. A common use case for stuff like this are in small transition sequences. Sometimes you need to slightly shift the timing of certain automation swells and note events simultaneously within one instrument. This would help keep everything simple and usable while staying within one MIDI part.

I would love to see this. I just finished working on a solo piano piece and it was a huge pain to have to manually move/edit the sustain pedal data every time I nudged the notes around in the edit window. This is not a good workflow.

This function is missing, it should be available as an option.

This should really be implemented.

It's been four years since this feature request was made and this feature has still not been added. Reaper and Logic both do this, and I'm sure other DAWs do it as well. It really should be added. Anyone like me who works with a lot with sustain pedal data and mod-wheel data will see this as a necessity.
