When working in the MIDI editor window, applied Retrospective MIDI notes don't show up at first. They play, but you can't see them until you refresh the the MIDI editor window by closing/reopening or zooming out and back in. Other than that, I'm loving that PT is finally starting to catch up to Logic and Cubase on this front. PT 2018.7 on Win7.
When working and editing on larger sessions - especially 5.1 - The Trim tool is operating incorrectly:
So while in trim mode, and ie clicking and holding to adjust a clip boundary, if I 'let go' and move my mouse cursor to continue on with another task, the clip will NOT stay where I had 'let go' and instead moves with my mouse cursor! It's more apparent the more Protools has to think... more »
Sometimes it works but much more often the tracks themselves become active but not the VCA output so they don't actually do anything and the mix is messed up.

When ungrouping a clip-group PT 2018.4 (also happens in 2018.1) will crash 100% of the time if there's a fade located right on the edge inside the group, As a workaround you have to trim the group and ungroup then but since there's no way for the user to know if there's a fade inside the group the crash will always happen.
Super annoying on large conforms.
without a selection or a selection over the empty time-line hitting alt-command-U (ungroup) brings up the strip silence window., Seems like a new bug, Doesn't happen in 2018.1. The command for strip silence is command-U not alt-command-U. The later is ungroup.
Please fix as this messes up workflow when conforming recuts.
To reproduce, select multiple clips. Name them like so: Question 8, Question 8-A, Question 8-B, Question 8-C, etc. When done, shift-command-r to rename. Note that Question 8-C comes before Question 8-A.
Using the Cut Time function on a locked clip will cause Pro Tools to crash on macOS. I've tested this with PT2018.4 on both macOS 10.12 and on 10.13 with the same result.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
1. Create a new audio track.
2. Create a new clip through consolidate.
3. Apply Edit Lock on the clip.
4. Make a Timeline Selection within the clip.
5. Use Cut Time.
6. Click Allow to confirm.
For this reason, its interface is rendered very poorly on high DPI screens. Even experimenting with Windows' high DPI settings, there are several glitchy configurations and only one configuration that makes the interface usable.
I provide two screenshots which explain the problems experienced with 200% scaling on a 4K display.

PT 2018.4 Option drag to copy a midi note fails about half the time resulting in the original note just being moved instead of creating a copy. It's been that way a long time-years.
Currently with video sync offset if you enter an offset in Milliseconds the actual offset only changes in a 40 ms intervals. In our system if I put in 61ms it produces an offset that is still out of sync by 20ms, if I enter 62ms then the sync jumps to -20 ms our of sync when measured. This is using the app catchin sync to measure.

Anytime the Undo History window is open it breaks the group selection by keyboard functionality. IOW, I can enable keyboard focus to the group bin and enable/disable groups by pressing the group ID letter on the keyboard, BUT if the Undo History window is open anywhere on the screen, this functionality is broken!
Confirmed on other systems.
