I'd like to see a complete overhaul and cleanup of windows management including elegant docking, logical choices when using zooming features, and better parallel tracking from window type to window type.
One thing I'd like to see is better handling of simple windows management on PC, some of which I've covered in this thread
. Apparently this is not a problem on Macs, so why is it so on PC? The whole docking mechanism needs to be overhauled so windows snap and stay in place.
But there's other "silly" stuff. For example, if I have a selected track on the project page and I decided to vertically zoom all tracks, why doesn't the selected track stay centered on my screen? Currently I have to keep interrupting the zoom to chase after it, or do the zoom size I want and go fetch it from wherever it's disappeared to.
Or why is it if I select a track on the project screen and move to a different unlocked workspace with a mixer, that selected track isn't automatically centered for me to work on? Wouldn't it make sense to automatically center display selected tracks from workspace to workspace?
How about an auto-hide/unhide that would allow the user to select a group output and have a command that automatically displays a mixer with only the member tracks connected to that group without the user having to configure anything. This would be a very useful thing to me.
The mixer track hiding/unhiding mechanism is a powerful one. I've just started using it recently but I'd like to see preset selection as an option for external control from control devices. I don't understand why it's been omitted from that long list of options. Is there a problem with it?
New features, new synths, and new processors are nice, but I'd like to see some effort and time spent on some of the nuts and bolts of display and its smoothness and usability. The elements are all there; all it needs is a little time, effort and a little inspiration. It's certainly not as glamorous as a lot of other stuff, but it would certainly make my day to day a lot more pleasant and give the app a good professional make over.
