  Create Score Set from Selection

I can't describe it any better than the Logic documentation.

In music, the term swing has two main uses. Colloquially, it is used to describe the propulsive quality or “feel” of a rhythm, especially when the music prompts a visceral response such as foot-tapping or head-nodding (see pulse). This sense can also be called “groove”.

Logic Pro Quantize region parameter — Apple Support

You can fix the display quantization of all MIDI events in the projects using the Score Editor’s Functions > Quantization > Fix displayed Note Positions and Fix displayed Note Positions and Durations commands.

The commands are also available from the shortcut menu when you Control-click notes in the score.
