This is not a feature request, it is a BUG. But I don't know if there is a mechanism for submitting bugs.
Under Options->Advanced->Console there is an option for "Channel Editor Follows Selection". When this option is selected, the Channel Editor does follow the track/channel selection only if the Instrument Editor is NOT showing. If the instrument Editor is showing, the channel Editor *DOES NOT* follow the track/channel selection.
During tracking and live play, you need to see the macro controls currently active for the selected track/channel.
