Place Big Red Button "Automation Follows Edit" at the toolbar

I think we need a button "Automation Follows (Not Follows) Edit" at the Edit window toolbar. It should turn glowing red when automation is NOT following (I'd prefer it flashing as well). It's time consuming digging into menus every time I need Automation to NOT follow edit, and I don't know about you, but I always forget about it and have to undo several edits when I realise that automation is screwed up. Please.

Have you ever selected the pencil and started to draw a line, only to discover a triangle wave appears?

Like most users, I use my keyboard shortcut keys to select tools - i.e. the pencil, trimmer, grabber, etc. Several of these tools have long drop down menus of functions... more »

easier entry of session timecode start

Film and TV composers have to enter new session time code starts on previously recording sessions no less than 20 times a day because we often re-use the same thematic material in several different locations of a film or TV episode.

ProTools hits us with this pop-up message on every digit entry, i.e. - hours:(popup)minutes:(popup)seconds:(popup)frames:(popup) when entering a new time code start (see pop-up message below),... more »

It would really appreciated for many users if PT could be translated in more languages. I think in particular about french wich is my main language, but I'm pretty sur that spanish, german... users will love it.
