FX Channels in Bus Folder Track

asked Jun 28, 2020 in Look and Feel by scottmcgregor3 (1,570 points)
I want to be able to add my FX Channel into a Bus Folder on the mixer.
Use case example:
I have two rhythm guitar tracks in a RHYTHM GTR BUS, both those rhythm tracks are routed to an FX channel  with a delay inserted. That FX channel is also routed to my RHYTHM GTR BUS. When I collapse the RHYTHM GTR BUS, despite being routed to the bus, my FX channel remains outside of the collapsed folder.
I use the folders to clean up my mixer, if kind of defeats the purpose if I can't collapse all the tracks feeding the bus.

Add an automation lane for the effect channel and you can add it to the folder. I do this as well but in my preferences, I have it set to automatically create tracks for all my bus and Fx channels.

Yeah, I figured that out and you are correct.
However, this seems like a workaround to me. I shouldn't have to make an automation lane to have this functionality. It also ends up completely cluttering my arrange window unnecessarily.

...this is also one of my main wishes so that the mixer remains clear..!
