When bouncing to a Quicktime movie in 5.1 in PT 12.8.0 and lower, the track order is wrong when playing the resulting file in other applications. It appears as though Film order us being used, and SMPTE/ITU order is expected.
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.

I've tried about 15 episodes worth of OMF files that open perfectly in PTHD10 -
on 11.. NONE work.
"Could not complete the Import Tracks command because OMFI_ERR: Bento container error;In omfsOpenFile "
This is a huge problem guys.. gotta fix this stuff ASAP - as us post audio guys are already an angry bunch as it is :)

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 »
