Focus selective undo, categorized undo histories

asked Jun 19, 2017 in Studio One Feature Requests by DelTomix (490 points)
It would be nice if undo operations were categorized into three main work-flows. It is easy to bury arranger changes in deeply accumulated histories of mixer/fader tweaks, or plugin adjustments. The entire operation would be much more powerful and convenient if these undo operations were separated.

 1) Mixer and channel operations

2) Arranger and Editor operations

3) Plugins (instruments and inserts)

Two ways of implementing this would be by first having a separate or sub-categorized history for each operational category, and undoing from history in similar fashion to the current undo from history.    More robust and intuitive would be the option to have undo functionality act on the history related to the operation in focus. So in the Arranger, ctrl-z would act on arranger operations, - or -if the mix window is in focus, then ctrl-z would undo mixer operations - or - if a plugin has focus, ctrl-z would operate on plugin-related undo-histories.

There are similar feature requests but they are very vague/unspecific so I felt it worth writing a more complete FR.
