Subject: how to select/copy a region? (not just the notes)

hello,
when I'm working in midi, if I select a bunch of notes to copy and paste, can I select a section of time (basically some measures) instead of a group of notes?

when I can only select notes. if the first note starts at a random place, when paste it somewhere else, I can't sync it to the same place within a measure as the source. I have no way to place the cursor in the exact same spot within a measure as where it started from the original source.
This would be easier if i could select and copy an entire measure, regardless of when the first note starts in it. then I can paste it right on a snappable line and the notes will end up in the exact same place within the measure.

does this make any sense?
is there a way to do this?

thanks!!!

In ACID Pro 7.0, you can copy/move entire sections of a project using the Sections feature. (Shift + S is the keyboard shortcut with a region of time selected.) If that helps any, anyway.
