Editor List > Regions


Could anyone explain this behaviour to me please?

I have the Editor List open on “Regions” and see entries appear as I add MIDI regions to a track. These all appear in white text.

If I select one region and choose “MIDI > Unlink from other copies”, the copy appears in the list in blue text. There is a drop-down arrow that groups all linked copies of a region together, while any new regions I create on the fly (and their copies) all still sit at the top level, not grouped like this.

I find the grouping really useful, helps keep track of linked chunks of MIDI data to avoid duplication or accidental editing, but it seems really random. The manual doesn’t mention this:



The manual is deeply incomplete.

The design of the region list is deeply incomplete.
