Give the 'Range Tool' dedicated cursor like the 'Cut Tool' *edit* New 10.5 editing is great, just add this and we good!*

I meant to do the mockup on the automation lane at the bottom instead of the region itself, because that is where it would be useful, when you have a group track you want to automate way below a track above and you want a guideline for where to put the first point of which you will trim the automation

+1 Great idea, would be highly useful every day.

I would be more coherent overall yes.

I redid the mockup

Great new editing features in 10.5, this just needs to get added now!
