Please add this feature, its so easy to do and so important at the same time, and no other DAW has it.

It should be possible in the note editor to select a scale and then highlight all the notes belonging to the scale. I know a lot of people use a workaround where they select notes in the drumpad and then collapse the notes in drum edit mode. It may be something a classicaly trained musician doesnt even think about, but for the people who like to draw in notes and cant play it would be huge.

One work around is to create a piece of midi in the arranger timeline that contains all the notes in a certain scale and stretch them out over eight bars or so. Then use layered editing and lock the scale layer so you have a highlighted scale. I just remembere where I saw this, so to give credit where credit is due:

I, too, would also love to have this feature! PLEASE! Everyone else is doing it! Give in to the peer pressure, devs!

+1 this

This used to be easier with v2.4 I think - now it seems impossible with v3 to put MIDI notes in the clip but outside the playable loop (to use as reference) .... unless I'm mistaken (happy to be corrected on this!)
