Just as a side note: this won't do what you want. The region in the timeline is independent of the one in the clip launcher slot.

Fair enough, I can deal with reloading the region after modifications.

I can see how that could be difficult to handle a shared region between clip and timeline. That could be a nice feature though.

Actually, it's not hard, and a few months ago, that was how things worked.

The potential for user confusion, however, was too great, so we changed things.

I'm experiencing the same issue.

Trying to edit midi regions, that are already loaded as clips, crashes ardour consistently.
This happens e.g. when you try to add a new note, or lengthen an existing note.

My version of Ardour is:
       Ardour8.6.0 (built using 8.6 and GCC version 13.2.1 20230801)
And my distro is Arch Linux.

As a side note, I would find it very convenient if "realtime" editing of clips would be possible,
and I was under the impression that it worked that way. When you import a region as a clip,
it doesn't get another name, so I assumed that it still referred to the same region.
