Similar to freezing rows or columns in a spreadsheet program, I've often thought it would be great to be able to lock specific tracks at the top of your edit window so that they were constantly visible while being able to vertically scroll through the rest of your session. For example, keeping picture editorial guide tracks locked at the top of your edit window so they would be constantly visible / available for reference.... more »
One nifty little feature I would like Pro Tools to implement would be to see which tracks are muted (and soloed) in the track list.

With the current Single/Normal Zoom function you can only make a selection on one track. I would like this feature to be changed to combine with Zoom Toggle so that you can freely make a selection with the Zoom key and it will toggle to fit the screen. It eliminates one extra step of making a selection and pressing E. I'd rather be able to do this all-in-one.
