Retain newly added automation / CC lanes in other tracks

If I add Expression for one track, opening up the key editor in another track doesn't include Expression as a tab for CC editing. It is very time consuming to add it on every track. Please retain the same tabs across all tracks.

I think there should be

A) a general option in preferences > Instrument editing „Show one editor for music parts“

B) a command to show used CCs

I don't think this is the best solution. Some tracks need more CCs than others, which I don't need to see elsewhere. Importing midi would also be a mess.

A better solution would be a little 'make default' checkbox next to each parameter in the pop-up window so that you can pick and choose which ones you'd like to see on every track. Kind of like this (excuse my poor drawing lol):

As a bonus: it would be neat if we could re-order these CCs for maximum de-cluttering :D

Side note: the best temporary method I've found is to make one empty midi container with all necessary CCs and copy it over to all the other tracks (merge with other midi events if necessary).
