In the MIDI Editor I have a script that moves selected notes by an interval; it works most of the time, but in one situation goes horribly awry.
This is the MIDI editor before running the script. The index of the selected note is 9, and overlaps the previous note.

This is the script:
-- Move the selected note back by an eigth
local _,_,_,s,e = reaper.MIDI_GetNote(take,9)
This is the result:

This works correctly IF:
  • the notes aren't overlapped
  • the note is not selected
  • the notes are not the same pitch
  • the note is moved by the arrow keys rather than the script
If I use MIDI_GetNote to check the lengths after, they don't reflect the longer note. It does however appear correctly in the event list.
I haven't come up with a workaround for this, it always seems to happen when the notes fall on the same starting point.

I wasn't sure if this belonged in Bug Reports or Developer's Forum, but I found this thread and it seemed appropriate...
This is a long-standing bug in the high-level API. You can use my drop-in replacement, MIDIUtils (here), which solves it.
