Nice .gif and explanation JHP. Thank you.
Unfortunately, I’ve just tried and cannot confirm. Though, I did this on an existing project with a lot of tracks and parts/events, some group tracks and FX tracks already there.
Trying your recipe, it first placed the (new) folder, group and CTRL+‘chosen’ track all together BELOW my existing group and FX tracks. Second, after re-launch of project (don’t know why, I just decided to close and re-open it), this time it placed the (new) folder, group and CTRL+ ‘chosen’ track below a bunch of other vocal tracks.
It did not leave the CTRL+chosen track where it was (like in your .gif).
You may need to experiment with this a bit more. Might be, that your recipe only works on empty projects…
So, a big +1 here for the Feature Request from the OP - i.e. when creating a Group Track (or any for that matter…!) I would like the option of it appearing immediately below my chosen (selected) track in the Arrange page. As Split above also notes, this has been requested very many times…!
Thanks for listening.
