2018.7 bug: when dragging an Xformed region to a non-elastic track to render audio PT no longer adds the suffix Xfor-Xfor to the rendered audio filename. This makes it impossible to keep track of which clips have been processed or not, breaking a vital part of post pro workflow. See attached screen grabs for correct behaviour in 2018.4 and incorrect behaviour in 2018.7.
Greatly increasing the buffer helps some, but this is an unacceptable solution, as it adds latency.

During playback, editing a clip on a stereo track while in playlist view causes a system-wide playback glitch the first time an edit is made, and then a playhead jump on the second edit. Mono playlist editing doesn’t cause the glitch, but stereo and LCR do. PT 12.8.1 doesn't exhibit this behavior, 12.8.3 does.

Then, wherever I click in the session with the Selector tool or upper half of a playlist with the Smart Tool, everything remains selected rather than simply... more »
name a track something like:
the files recorded on to this track will end up being labeled "Donna_01" as opposed to what you expect "Donna-Boom_01"
I record a lot of ADR and the extension "-Boom" is pretty important to distinguish between this channel and the "-Lav" channel, being simultaneously recorded. My work-around solution is to just name the tracks "Donna-Bom" and "Donna-Lav" -- so my clients... more »

4. Save the session.
5. Close the session.
6. Open the session.
7. The solo button for the alternate playlist is still enabled, but the main playlist is playing.
8. Toggle the solo button for the alternate... more »
When you are in volume view of a track and you have the trim tool selected, trimming the volume of a region without first double clicking the region will result in only the unfaded part of the region's volume being trimmed, which is stupid. Never in nearly twenty years of mixing in ProTools have I wanted to adjust the overall volume of a region but not have the fade in and out affected.
Found on Pro Tools M-Powered 8.0.4cs2:
1. Make a track inactive - everything is greyed out.
2. Save and load session.
3. Pan buttons not greyed out on inactive tracks - and they are movable.
When I import tracks from a session that does NOT start at hour 1 (let's say from Reel 2/hour 2) into a session that DOES start at hour 1... The new tracks are placed at the correct spot in the timeline, with all associated mix automation data EXCEPT the send automation! Any send automation is separated from the regions and placed out of sync at the beginning... more »

Not sure if this a 9.02 side effect but all of a sudden pressing the "Browser" button temporally freezes PT.
