Love the new group options in v4.5, but I really feel there is one section missing from the group options, and that is automation.

When I have my tracks grouped I very often would like to make same automation moves to all the tracks within a group, and as of now automation moves don’t follow in S1 even if the tracks are grouped. And copying the automation points isn’t the most fastest workflow.

I was actually under the mistaken impression that this WAS implemented within the grouping features - until I tried to "use" it.  Selecting the "Volume" check-box keeps faders moving together, but not creating or moving volume automation points?  Ok.  Feels kind of half-baked to me.  

I suppose this is why the "Inserts" check-box doesn't appear to do much either (Bypass?  anything else?).

We really do need this option in there for grouping to feel complete.  In fact, I would go so far as to say this would be one of the more useful grouping options to implement.
