Thanks all, updating first post now~!

By using these actions, a user can combine and manipulate whole tracks full of MIDI events without having to find and select every single MIDI clip.
Do you mean viewing multiple items or editing multiple. Currently Reaper can view multiple items at the same time, I have mine set to open all midi items on the same track at the same time when an item is open. Setting is in the preferences menu.

As for editing multiple items at the same time, that is something we all constantly ask for. This FR is a start:

Then, Cockos SHOULD allow developers registering their actions in other contexts than Main, so that we could have new MIDI Editor actions in the corresponding Actions list context. Workarounds are not nice.

We should be able to decrease the width of left-side piano roll graphic, to gain more space.

Load Scales dialog does not remember last visited folder. I don't want it to look in REAPER Resources/Data, I created my own folder, REAPER Resources/Scales, that I want it to look into.

The Scale button should change its width according to the scale name length.

MIDI Filter should be dockable to MIDI Editor (this is coming, according to schwa's words).

I made a FR for track based editing which had 3 things which needed to be changed (item based colour, better opening editor options and edit multiple items). The first two were added to V4, I really hope we can edit multiple items at the same time soon.

Mike's FR for multiple item editing:
