Marquee Tool lacking from Piano Roll [SOLVED]

Go to solution Solved by Danny Wyatt,

Hey guys,

Sorry if this has been covered before. I do lots of automation in the Piano Roll, and for some reason the Marquee Tool is not available in that environment. The Marquee tool is super practical when you want too insert 2 automation nodes on the same horizontal point (as in the picture below). This is not a HUGE problem since I can switch to the main environment (where Marquee Tool is available) for this type of editing, just a bit annoying as it interupts the workflow. Is there any workaround for this, eg some command to automatically insert 2 automation nodes while in Piano Roll?

I didn't know this myself, but decided to test something.

Change the Command-Click Tool to the Pencil Tool, if it's not already, then press CMD+ALT while clicking the automation. It will create the 4 nodes you need, then you just need to adjust. It's the closest to the Marquee.
