Although somebody already suggested that a selectable option under preferences be added to Clear All Clipping indicators when restarting playback, I think it would be good to have a keyboard shortcut to clear on demand as well.

Something like: Alt+C = Clears all clipping red light indicators in channels, buses, and outputs.

Sonar, Pro Tools, and Logic do have this.

Coming from Reaper was super disappointed to see this wasn't a thing. I have that shortcut in reaper mapped to a button on my FP classic and i use it ALL THE TIME. Getting gain staging right is a pain in the *** enough without having to mouse over and clear a clipping warning every time. Have it on a button and boom clear.

Add Digital Performer to the list of DAWs that let you assign a keyboard command to clear all cliping indicators.

Any news about this shortcut? Or suggestion for work around?

This is really such a work flow killer! You have to put down your instrument or let go of the gain trims on your mixer or interface, locate the mouse and the mouse pointer, aim it at the tiny tiny overload clip, ...but the indicator is not visibly now when you are listening back, it is only visible when transport is not in play, so you have to stop the playback, then clear the clip indicator with the mouse, and ....wait, what was I doing before this operation stole my attention?? (Did I do something creatively musically that now got lost in the operation?)

Let's have a short cut! Now! Please

I'm very new to recording. However, a resetting clipping shortcut is one of my first workflow annoyances... how is this not addressed yet??? I'm a programmer and this is SIMPLE to implement.

Selecting all tracks and clearing just one clipping indicator does not work. I could have sword it did when I tried it before.

Yes, please! This was suggested to S1 v.3, now we are in v.6 and still missing it.
