Summary0006315: Collapse grouped tracks feature
DescriptionBack when I used Cakewalk Sonar 8, Sonar had a nice feature that allowed the user to create groups of tracks (which Ardour does) and then collapse the group in the main view to a single row (which Ardour doesn't do). This would be a very useful visual workflow option. The workaround is to hide individual tracks. While that's useful in itself, it's unwieldy when one wishes to one-click-hide all tracks assigned to a group, especially when all tracks in that group have their output routed to a bus for processing.

Ableton does it fairly nicely: http://www.macableton.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/Lives-Arrange-view-with-all-tracks-and-groups-folded-1024x576.png [^] (attached)

Basically, when a group is collapsed, you can still see all of the tracks, but not their headers, and each track is only a few px high. This is great for a percussion group, because you can still see the main sections quite well from an arrangement perspective.
