Why does dragging the end of a MIDI clip in the arrangement view sometimes extend it instead of looping?

To clarify, dragging the right end of a MIDI clip (when mouse cursor turns into a ] square bracket) to the right usually causes that clip to extend into a loop. However, in one of my projects, it extends the MIDI clip to be longer (and the extended part is empty). Can anyone tell me why and how to change this? Thanks.

    If you recorded it into the arrangement view and recorded for say 6 bars, but only played into 4 bars then cropped it, there will be the extra 2 bars at the end. instead of dragging to loop it, just duplicate it. Im not sure how to change it though.

    Finally found the answer! Double click the clip, and to the left of the piano roll, under the "Notes" section, click/activate the "Loop" button. Then it should start looping when you drag the edge of the MIDI clip in the arrangement view. Hooray!
