When working on a large project I often have to rapidly alter automation on lanes that are very far apart in the project e.g track 2 and track 49.
I know I can use track visibility to hide tracks I’m not working on but towards the end of a project I need lots of tracks /automation lanes open. Scrolling up and down trying to find the right track is headache inducing and terrible for my ailing eye sight.
Colouring tracks can help a bit, but it only goes so far, a 60 track project can’t have 60 distinguishable colours after all.
The solution would be to have something similar to markers, so a panel on the left of the arrangement page (similar to the track visibility panel) could contain a custom list of automation lanes (drag and drop). I could then select a lane from this list or use a hotkey to cycle through the list. No more starring at tracks flying past my eye ever again! It would just jump to the right place. Not only would this be more ergonomic it would probably save 30 mins a day where I scroll back and forth hunting for the track I want.
