"Automatically Copy Files on Import" should be on by default

Too many mix engineers receive sessions with missing audio files all because the non-pro users do not know that the simple preference "Automatically Copy Files on Import" is not, by default, checked on their system.

Link Mix/Edit Group Enables preference

I was just informed that in Pro Tools 12.8.2, going forward, AVID programmers have abandoned the link feature altogether in preferences because they can't figure out how to fix it.. This means now you have to continuously enable groups every time you want to edit grouped tracks and then disable to avoid mixing grouped faders unwantingly. Please vote to make them figure out how to fix it. What's next?

Custom Organize plugins menu into folders & sub-folders

Let people organise the their plugins menu into folders & sub-folders the way they want. The plugin layout would be done with an Avid Standalone Application on the desktop (before loading Pro Tools) where the user can setup folders, sub-folders and place all the plugins into the desired place. It would also be possible to rename plugins to what the user wants them to be called. The setup would be saved as "User" or "Custom". ...more »
