Summary0008298: Activation / deactivation of track
DescriptionWhen I make an track inactive it will remove all the track controls and also the name. At least for me is confusing because I can't even see what tracks stay there deactivated. I think what was in version 5 was better (just grayed out controls and the name).
TagsNo tags attached.

That is odd. The name should still be visible (see screenshot below). I cannot reproduce it.

Is that issue reliably repeatable? Is this Ardour from or a self-built (different gtk version)? Does it persist across session reloads? Which operating system are you using?

It is self built from the master branch
, is built on Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS
I see used by the binary
Maybe there are some file settings that I need to remove left by version 5.
Also, when expanding the inactive track there comboboxes will be shown, I don't know if this is intended.

Made pull request here:
For now it fixes for audio tracks only. I hope I am going in the right direction. Ideally would to be able to re-attache the label from control table to inactive table somehow.

I can reproduce that and it only seems to affect MIDI tracks. Audio and buses names are still visible between ()
(On Ardour 6.2 from; Debian 10)

I am using the code from the master and the name for MIDi is shown ok.

I think there is also a need to change the color of the name to gray, and remove the parentheses.
