Rubberband/rectangle selection of midi notes

I’m using Ardour 6.0 on Ubuntu 20.04 and I’m trying to do a rubberband selection of midi notes in a region, as specified in this page of the manual: https://manual.ardour.org/editing-and-arranging/edit-midi/note-selection/

It makes reference to Object Mode the page that it links to doesn’t make any reference to Object Mode. Is this an error?

I’ve tried Ctrl + left click on an empty space in the region whilst in Draw and Grab Mode but in the former it just draws a note and the latter it selects the whole region.

I think it would be better if there were less tool options and they were more context aware but as it is we need to select specific tools for specific actions.

You need to use the Internal Edit Mode tool.

ah, thank you!

So I guess the documentation is incorrect?
