Summary0008706: Allow simultaneous drag of selected markers & regions
DescriptionIt's already possible to select multiple markers (via the usual <Ctrl>+click/<Shift>+click actions), and all the selected markers can be moved together. Moreover, it's possible to select both markers and regions simultaneously. However, dragging a selected marker or region when the selection contains both types of objects doesn't move all the selected objects, but only those of the same type as the one being dragged.

It could be useful if dragging a region or marker when both types of objects are selected moved all the selected objects.

There's a bigger issue here, which is how to select and move "everything" in a given section of the timeline (markers, tempo, meter, automation, audio, MIDI) ... we don't have a clear, solid idea on the best approach to this so far.

A "move everything" would be a marvellous thing, but even without that, I think a "move all selected things, whether regions or markers" could be useful.

There's definitely a question about what should happen when moving a selection containing a mixture of items whose position is specified in samples and ones whose position is in musical time when there are tempo or meter changes, but that would apply equally to "move everything" and "move selection", unless the selection is only ever allowed to contain items with one or other type of position.

region+marker drag in Ripple All edit mode is now implemented in the new-ripple-arch branch.

I haven't tried the new-ripple-arch branch yet, so maybe it works like I hoped already, but the idea was really orthogonal to slide/ripple/ripple all edit modes. What I envisaged was that regardless of the edit mode, if there were both markers and regions selected, that moving a selected marker by dragging it would also move the selected regions by the same amount (and/or vice versa).
