When this option is active, it would be helpful if it deselected all other tracks that were previously selected. It mostly works but in certain instances it doesn’t.
I find if I use split screen in the edit window, I select a track above the divider then I select a clip on a track below the divider (which automatically selects that track) the top track will remain active along with the track that has been automatically selected below the divider. I use Q Link a lot and this can lead to accidentally writing automation on tracks that I don’t want touched as they have not been automatically deselected.
I usually run all of my group tracks above the divider and edited audio below and this issue can lead to levels being adjusted on whole stem/group masters inadvertently.
I also sometimes run VCA faders but put them into folders which I close to avoid the edit window locating the the VCA’s when I touch the VCA physical faders. When I touch the VCA fader which is in a folder that VCA track becomes active. When I then select a clip the VCA fader in the folder remains active. This also means that when I start automating on the track with the clip the hidden VCA fader will also be writing thanks to the Q link and the fact that the VCA has not been automatically deselected.
I understand I can change my workflow to account for this issue, but I still believe it is an issue that could hopefully be easily resolved.
