Can’t deselect hovered note
Create a music gadget and go into the piano roll.
Draw some notes with the pencil tool, then unequip the pencil.
Select some notes with X
Hover the imp over one of the selected notes and press circle.
The expected result is that the notes would deselect, same as with regular object or gadget selections. However it doesn’t work if the imp is hovering over a note, and you have to move the imp to empty space and press circle again to actually deselect.
Agreed with TAPgiles, this is an internal inconsistency. My issue is not one of misunderstanding the controls. I'm trying to deselect all, not deselect one, but it doesn't work when hovering a note. This doesn't happen in other selection situations.
We're aware that is how to do things. But again, it is different to most other parts of creation, so indicates that this is not working as designed... as designs tend towards making things consistent across the whole application rather than having unexplained edge-cases like this.
If this is not a bug, should I post this as a suggestion to change the design so that it is consistent with the rest of Dreams?

In Music mode CROSS button to select a note, whilst double tapping CROSS selects all notes. Pressing CROSS deselects a highlighted note and double tapping CROSS deselects all highlighted notes. In addition, pressing CIRCLE within the canvas deselects all highlighted notes.
Also, even if you hover over the sky and use circle it doesn't work if memory serves?
