Ripple Editing does not affect the time signature, tempo or chord tracks or markers and obliterates automation.

When using ripple editing to delete or add entire sections of ALL tracks (to shorten or lengthen a song or remove sections from a song) with Ripple Editing, any markers, time signatures, tempo changes, or chords in the chord track DO NOT move with the song but rather stay where they are.  Any automation in the tracks gets strangely edited and changed rather than just connected (even with a straight vertical line) at the edit point.  

While I would expect this behavior with ripple editing one track at a time, when editing the length of a song, I would rather any significant markers and time changes to move back or forth with the deletions and insertions on all tracks at once.  As you can imagine, this causes havoc with the entire song when it doesn't follow the order of the song.

Please improve ripple editing to include this ability.
