From the Console it's often hard to see what's actually going within the routing dialogue. It would be helpful if we had an option (we can toggle on and off) to reflect the colors of the freely colored inserts in the Routing dialogue also in the console. So it's easier to get an overview in a quick glance of what belongs to what when using splits, without the need to dive in the routing editor.

Something like this:

And perhaps the "Spiltter" could be also be added to the Inserts section when in the Channel view (along with the color coding above)? When the Splitter is selected for editing, it would open the Routing dialog.

Upvoted for the colors reflecting the colors in the Channel Editor

As for the idea of splitters showing up in the mixer, I'm leaning towards "pass." Some of my patches have 3 or 4 splitters in the Channel Editor. I actually like how these don't show up my small insert rack in the console, as on a laptop screen it makes It harder to see the inserts I adjust more frequently.
