is there any way that I can select notes in a clip on computer screen with the mouse, and then correspondingly use the knobs on PUSH to nudge them?

as far as I currently know, the only way to nudge notes via the controller is pressing-and-holding down the corresponding note's pad in step mode, and then using the knob to nudge.

however, I'm a newbie and have only gone through the basics.

I'd be quite disappointed if this was the ONLY way to use the controller to nudge... so am wondering if there's just something I don't know yet, where I CAN indeed SELECT notes in a clip via MOUSE, which will then change the screen on Push to enable the nudge knob...?

Unfortunately, you can't do that. You have to hold the pad of the note in order to nudge the note (or adjust velocity etc.).

Note editing is my main disappointment with Push 2. Unless you do super-basic stuff it is practically useless and you have to use your mouse to do the job.

NI Maschine offers vastly superior event editing. With Maschine, you can select notes and move them freely, transpose them etc. Have no idea why Ableton messed up such a basic feature.

Jeezus.

I switched over from Maschine, fully expecting such a feature would be a given. That was the main thing I REALLY liked about Maschine that had me waiting on switching over to Push.

Hope Ableton gets this updated SOON... :-/

From an organizational perspective, I too can see the reason for this, I like that about maschine too. Unfortunately not to be in Live.

Not impossible though. Its in the API, so it could be added to Push.
You could have an MFL device with those functions, unfortunately you'll have to see the changes on the computer screen. (Or control from a device that isn't Push so you can see the notes on the Push display.)
