Default How can I STRETCH a MIDI track to fit measures?

I created a MIDI doodle on a keyboard, and now it's become a pretty nice track, but the note placement doesn't match the measures (didn't use a metronome) and now I want to stretch the entire track to make the notes more closely match the measure markers. I'm used to using Sonar, and there is an easy, obvious means to stretch or condense a series of notes, for this exact purpose, but I can't figure out how to do this in Reaper. How can I achieve this in Reaper (or maybe I stretch and condense the measures instead of the notes?) Just as long as I can make the MIDI notes match the measures, I'll be happy! Thanks!

Nevermind, I figured it out - and what an elegant, simple solution! Just Alt grab the MIDI section end handle and drag as you like! Perfect!

Indeed, that will stretch the MIDI item ; Reaper is always in for nice workflow surprises !

Yes, and this solution is even better than in Sonar where you have to "add 10%" or "subtract 10%" etc., which leads to a lot of guessing. With this Reaper method I can clearly see at what point I have the most notes inline with the measure markers as I adjust the section. I love it!
