solos turning green & affecting control of solo & mutes

asked Sep 22, 2017 in Studio One 2 by JAG Audio (170 points)
Recently when I've opened a song some of the solo buttons are now green not the normal yellow.

There seems to be unusual responses to mute and solo functions.

This is not present in other projects or songs just some.

I created a new channel under the one with a green solo & copied & pasted the file into the new track.

The solo on the newly created track is it's normal yellow colour.

What have I done to induce this new oddity?

Is this some form of automation I have somehow by accident?

How do I change things back or deactivate what I have done & prevent it happening again?

Thanks in advance

When the solo button is green it's in Save Solo mode, meaning that it will still play when other tracks go into solo.  Shift + Click the solo button to toggle it on any channel.  See the reference manual section pasted below.

9.2.23 Save Solo

It is possible to place Console channels in Save Solo mode. When any channel in the Console is soloed, all channels with Save Solo engaged are also soloed, and all other channels are muted. To engage Save Solo on any channel, [Shift]+Click on its solo button in Console. The Solo button will be green when Save Solo is engaged.

Note that FX Channels have Save Solo engaged by default because effects may be critical to how soloed channels sound in the mix, so when any channel is soloed, you will probably want to hear the applicable FX Channel output as well.
