Summary0008740: Regionlength is not adjustable precisely
DescriptionI have this problem a lot as i work with duplicating regions pretty often. When i set the length of a region to fit to the grid (even if i have the setting to the snap to grid only set) it will not be the right length. So when i duplicate the region a few times it moves off the grid. This is introducing phasing issues to hihats and makes it impossible to layer them cleanly.
Also when this happens and i have set the settings so the regions i move will snap to other regions ends or beginnings(which i find really usefull) it will move the region off the grid very often. This makes it unpredictable where i place the sounds.

On the pictures its possible to see, that the regionlength should be 1 bar but when i duplicate it a lot of times it moves off.
Steps To ReproduceJust set a regions length by snapping to grid and duplicate.
Tagsediting, loop, region

Maybe it's not the same issue, but I had similar problems which I resolved through disciplining myself _strongly_ to always switch snapping to "bar" when creating, resizing or moving regions around.

Often I created or resized regions in a wide zoom mode, which didn't allow me to see I was short of e.g. 1/64. So when duplicating 7 times, the same thing happened to me: the last region was short for 8*1/64 = 1/8. Duplicating these 8 bars again for sure created total chaos, not only phasing issues :)

Or is it another issue?

I think this could be another issue. I have snapping enabled all the time and even when i zoom in to the max i cant see the region being not the right size. Also the length seems to be: 001|00|0000 yet it still after a few duplications gets bigger... What do you mean with snapping to "bar"? Should i set the grid to a bar? :)

Yes, I meant grid to "bar" :)

But it seems it indeed isn't the same issue, as it apparently is about the rounding issue, which the devs say will be solved in Ardour 7.x.
