FR Studio One - No Overlap
One feature out of many for the picture and sound editors using pro tools everyday is the "no overlap" edit behavior. Which allows to copy/paste/duplicate/cut time on a track range level rather than all tracks only.
I know there are workarounds but something that is part of the standard as an option would be nice.
Not only that, in this little example you can see how no overlap works in combination with a Range (Edit) Selection.
In this use case for the user it is important that the Range (Edit) Selection stays intact when repeating these duplicate steps. But it should apply for copy/paste/duplicate/cut/delete
In Pro Tools a Range (Edit) Selection including gaps behaves similar to an Event (Clip).
Say you want to copy/paste/duplicate a range. The action should keep the range intact and place all events in that range including gaps and delete everything underneath.
If you do a lot of small edits the arrange area can get really crowded as studio one still has no native option to automatically delete overlaps when events overlap each other. I suggest to add these 2 options to the Edit preferences: (and as toggle key commands)
For easy access during editing and to check if these options are enabled/disabled it makes sense to put these options into the Arrange Views wrench menu as well. (And/or place icons directly below the smart tool selector?)
A fun fact: nearly all operations in studio one remove the range selection during editing only "Delete time" keeps the range selection intact.
I would like to have the ability to choose when or if the range selection disappears after an edit.
If enabled it should work for drag and drop as well as copy/paste/duplicate/cut/delete keyboard shortcuts!
