Yes, I too fall for it about 73% of the time. I wish there was some way for the action to be completed anyway. I don’t know, paint everything selected, or paint the majority of the objects selected (if 7 tracks and 3 events are selected, paint the tracks), or something!
Most of the times I sit there and keep clicking like a dumb@$$ and wonder why the colors don’t stick, until I finally remember to check if something is selected somewhere.
Eh, that’s puzzling. Can you give the command “Select None” before trying again? You don’t have Auto Select Events under Cursor enabled, perchance? What happens when you try to color the tracks from the toolbar at the top, just to the left of snap to zero crossing?
Oh right, from the toolbar at the top it’s working!
Now it all makes sense because I remembered that once I managed to color multiple tracks but couldn’t replicate it.
So you’re right, it will only work if there are no events selected (otherwise it colors the event itself), and for me I have to use the toolbar at the top
Thank you very much!
