complementary exercise:

undo all until there is no more undo (remark that undo buffer seems to be around 20 whitch is ridiculous in music editing. should be unlimited as midi do not waste much memory. Perhaps relying limits on buffer memory size would be better strategy)

Now create a 2 mesures region
write in it on each step (Notice you're back to time position without have mentioned it) do on mesure 2 beat 1 (m2-1), mi on m2-2, sol on m2-3, si on m2-4
select the 4 notes,
click on edit mode,
click on m3-1, copy : the notes are copied on m13 !???
And they are not selected so you have to select them to move them. Copied items should ALWAYS be selectioned. Imagine you already have notes on m13, the headake to find back the copied notes !
