Just installed the 8.0.5 update. My projects are still suffering the problem of Link Group Settings defaulting to include Volume, Sends and Routing on all Link Groups created with VCA Faders, despite being created and again re-edited to remove these options.
This does not appear to have been fixed yet.
Interestingly, if you save a link group with all checkboxes ticked, when you next open the project, they are all still ticked.
If you save a link group with only “Use VCA Fader…” ticked, it will reopen with Volume, Sends and Routing checked.
If you have a couple of audio channels routed to a group nested within the VCA Link Group, you cannot adjust the fader levels within the VCA group with the Volume enabled. Holding down Option key to suspend automation works, but as soon as you release the mouse, the fader snaps back to its original position.
I’m on a MacPro OSX 10.9.5 (guess I better update my footer!)
