Unwritten change(s) I've noticed

- Contact Map, Rama Map, and Blueprint buttons have received new icons for their buttons in Original and Selection Interfaces.

Minor change, but I figured I should put it here to keep the patch notes complete or for other folks who haven't noticed it to appreciate it.

Only in selection interface ?

I cannot find the 'Pick Sidechain' button you are referring to in the classic interface (much preferred by myself). Am I correct to assume it is only available in the selection interface ?

Right-Click Pie Menu

Right click a segment as you would to use Remix, Cut, etc. and select it from the pie menu. Upper right-ish, if memory serves me correctly.
