I guess I found this out the hard way…
So, if you setup some visibility configurations (for me, showing only one folder at a time of instruments (i.e, “keyboards”, “drums”, etc.) and add a new track to a folder, it will be visible for all visibility configurations and not follow your settings.
The reason? The track was added AFTER you created the visibility configuration. Thus, the track does not follow the setting.
However, I find this a mistake - if you have a configuration hiding a folder, all tracks inside should remain invisible, REGARDLESS of if they were added after the configuration was made. They’re in the invisible folder… so why make the folder visible again?
Is there any way around this? I had the terrible surprise of discovering this when my arrange window started becoming cluttered with tracks I had added that were intended to remain invisible. I want to only have to see one folder at a time without the hassle of opening/closing them repeatedly (plus there is no key command for that, as far as I know).
So, in a nutshell: Based on my visibility configurations, how can I automatically hide tracks that added to hidden folders?
