This is my favorite command and it seems to be broke in b11. Works sometimes... not most the time. I'm trying to repro what causes it to stop working and can't nail it down for now.

MBP 10.5.6

OK so its not broke... but the functionality has changed. Which I'd consider not to be an improvement, though there is probably a reason.?

In L7 you had to press option before clicking and dragging to copy a note in piano roll. Wouldn't work unless you pressed option first.

Now in L8b11 you have to press option after clicking and dragging to create copy. I like this too... but I'd prefer to be able to press option before or after clicking.

Yep, this was confirmed as a bug:

We'll be getting to option-click/crtl-click before dragging soon, if I'm not mistaken.

Hi,

In Live 8, you should be able to press CTRL/Cmd before or after starting to move the note, as to copy it, which is an improvement. But the "pressing before" is currently broken, as already reported.

I'll move the thread away, the other is enough.

Regards,
