Long time Studio One user here. I recently purchased a brand new DAW system (Win 10 Pro, I7 9600 processor, 32 gig ram, 6 TB storage etc) and upgraded to Studio One 4.5...coming from an older Mac Pro Tower with I5 Processor, 32gb ram etc and Studio one 2.5ish...

So on the two new Windows based systems when I group channels together and click on on event waveform in the timeline it highlights all recorded events that are combined in that group on the timeline. However if I click on a channel in the mixer view that is grouped with other channels it only highlights the single channel that the mouse cursor is hovering on and doesn't highlight the other channels that are in that same group. That same thing happens on the channel info on the left side of the timeline where all of the track information and Record, Solo, Mute buttons are etc. I can click on a single channel that is grouped with other channels and it only highlights the channel where the mouse is hovering. In Studio One 2.5 on my Mac system it highlights all of the channels that are grouped together when clicking on a channel in the track view. This is awesome that it works that way on the older versions of Studio One but not on the new version? Being able to see at a glance which channels are affected by the gouping is priceless. Why did you do away with that simple feature? I know you can group Pans, Mutes, Faders and the waveforms. Why not highlight the faders that are grouped any more or the channels in the track view. Please return this feature!

I think my issue is related to this one. When I select multiple tracks in the edit window, and change the color of one of them, all others are changed to the same color.
This does not happen in the Mix Console. I have to individually change the colors of all tracks. Selecting all and changing the color of one does not work in mix console.
