Patterns on Timeline
If a pattern is 1 bar long it can be made 'longer' on the timeline with the edit tool.
The pattern 'content' however stays at it's original length and the change is not reflected in the pattern helpers 3 dot menu.
Suggestion here is that when extending a pattern on the timeline it could either be auto-repeated(ie. loop) or extended with option to duplicate/copy the original source or create new empty bars.
If the lenght of a pattern is changed in the pattern helper it should be reflected on the time-line as well.
I'm pretty sure this idea can be further refined...
