[Traverso-devel] Request for comment: tracks folder views

Hello all,

As a follow up on my proposal to turn Sheets into 'tracks views' and the 
decision to not do that, I have a follow up question.

So the idea is that each Sheet can have multiple views. The sheet will by 
default have a 'main' view, where all tracks/buses/master bus will be shown, 
just as it is now.

The added functionality is that you can create another view that shows any 
track you want. Think of it as a scratch pad or whiteboard, or in fact, a Work 

Now consider this: You have a project with a Sheet, and this sheet has 4 
views. The main view, and 3 other views where you have tracks that needed to 
be aligned to each other.
Let's call them view main, one, two and three.

You added tracks/buses into the main view, imported/recorded to those tracks, 
marked a number of tracks/buses to be shown in view one and two, then changed 
view to number one, zoomed in, aligned the tracks, placed the work cursor, etc 
Then you go to view number two, and do some work there too.
Now you go back to view number one: "where do you expect the work cursor, the 
playback cursor and the horizontal scrollbar (so the visible timeline part) 
and also the zoom level".
Should it be as it was when you left view number one and started working in 
view number two ?
Or should view one have the same zoom, WC placement etc as view number two ?

In other words, are the views of a sheet in sync? Or can they have their own 
work cursor, zoom level, playhead position and so on, independent of each 
Or should both be possible ?

Another question: all sheets are placed in one tab widget now. So each sheet 
has one tab. If sheets can have multiple views, should these views also be 
added to this tab widget, or should a sheet have it's own tab widget, so an 
additional row of tabs for the views the sheet has.

I hope I made my questions clear.

Have a nice evening,
