Default MIDI: Displaying selected notes on piano Roll keys.

After some years using Reaper this is my very first Feature Request. I hope it can be useful for MIDI users.

MIDI: Displaying selected notes on piano Roll keys.
In my opinion Reaper is not taking advantage of the possibilities that the piano roll could offer. Unfortunately It has got a limited use.
Therefore (I think the title is meaningful) I would like to see in the piano roll a bunch of notes selected because it is a fast and graphical way of seeing what you have written.
Nowadays we can see only 1 NOTE reflected on the piano roll, but unfortunately, chords or long passages won’t take advantage of the midi piano roll. it might be useful when you have a lot of midi notes, doing so I think the workflow will be faster for midi users.


A second related idea.
MIDI: Displaying playback notes on the piano roll.
I think this could be really useful for piano music, as you could see (and listen) at once the result. That would be interesting for those who aren’t that good in following the playback of a score in notation.

I will post some images if my explanation is not good enough. As there is some work of the Devs on the midi side, maybe it would be a good time to check all this.
