Cycle Recording Audio

Can we go back to the original Audio Cycle Recording ?
This was recording between the locators like now for as many times as needed.
Then when you clicked on the resulting part you had the complete lanes ready for editing.
Now we hve to jump through hoops with multi layers on the project page and then select Audio/Events to Part/ Regions.
Then you get a tail at the start of the last lane (bottom lane)where you stopped the recording
This is lot of clicking to a part of lanes for editing.
