- The fades and crossfades could be linked with the "Snap to Grid" function for more accuracy and speed at work.

- Also a specific tool on the edge between two events should really help a lot of us to gain some efficacy. (Actually the only existing function consists move the crossfade emplacement, but here I talk about the crossfade width)

I wonder how this works in other DAWs. On one hand it would be consistent with the way Snap works in other parts of Studio One, that is, if Snap is ON, then everything snaps regardless. But on the other hand, I can't think of a time when snapping fades  would be all that useful. I mean, usually fades are the sort of thing I adjust by ear. It's a bit like zero crossings, they happen where they happen, and never conform to the song grid. I reckon non-snapping fades is deliberate and by design.

HOWEVER, one thing that really bugs me is the way fade bezier curves DO snap to the straight position. If I want a fade that's almost a straight line, but not quite, S1 automatically assumes I want a straight line and snaps.. I would much prefer no snapping at all here, and double-click or Ctrl+click the tension handle to reset. But I guess that's a separate feature request.
