Hi Eddie,

when having a pan window open and I click on a send in PT to open the fader, it will just open for a short moment and then both the pan and the send will close leaving you with neither open.

I guess it's the "close on exit" feature kicking in and closing everything ignoring that I actually wanted to open the send on the other track.

When you do this the other way around (having the send open first and then opening a PAN window on the other track with the mouse) the send will stay open (as it should).

Also sometimes what described first doesn't happen but the send will display for a short moment then close and the PAN window will re-open closing the send.

Overall very confusing when working and not really logical. So I assume it's broken, actually more broken than before.

Oh, and sends still don't seem to follow track selections. When set to auto-close the PAN, Plugins etc. follow fine but a given send will just close when you move the cursor the next track with P for example.

I'm seeing the same behavior as well. It looks like there may have been an update in 2019.12 addressing it but I'm yet to install it to find out. In the release notes it says:

"Control Surfaces
Clicking a track name in Pro Tools will once again attentions track to surfaces when the 'Attention Most Recently Clicked DAW Area' preference is set (PT-256012)"

I tried this on PT19.12. It is broken. It only took me 1 minute to encounter this. Makes me wonder...
Such an essential function not working is so frustrating and it has been for some time
now. Every new release it’s broken in a different way. :-(

Worth a shot I guess. I'm still hopeful that the new Control app will expand with improvements at a quicker pace now that it's actually out but it is a distraction when something's off like this. I'm tempted to mix with my screen off.:rolleyes:
