I wish for extensive options how event/layers/takes are named as they are created.

Example from other daw

This is a mixture of own text and certain attributes of an event - track number, name of track and a timestamp in the case above.

Other examples to choose from could be $layernumber, $takenumber, $second etc.
And every event is named without manual interaction as they are created - to own personal taste.

So one such template as preference setting for each of tracknames, eventnames, layernames etc.

And these $prefixed options can also be part of macro parameters available to directly rename stuff accordingly.

Thanks for voting.

Agreed...I've noticed even after renaming takes for proper sequence, the re-naming doesn't update in the pool even after saving the file
