Default Match Duration doesn't really match duration

When relinking manually, if your file IDs have gone awry you sometimes want to relink by name only. Luckily, Protools provides this option. It even has a checkbox for "Match Duration" so you're less likely to match to a file with the same name as the file you're after but actually is a different file (eg "Audio 1_01")

Except the checkbox only half works. It won't let you link to a file that's shorter than the one you're looking for but it will happily link to a file that's longer with no warning at all that the length doesn't match and that you're therefore almost certainly linking to the wrong file.

Fix please...

Default Re: Match Duration doesn't really match duration

This works as intended:

4 Configure criteria for relinking, if necessary, in the Linking Options dialog:
• By default, Find by Name and ID is enabled.
• To add additional matching criteria, select an option from the Linking Options dialog. (Modification Date is only applicable to Catalogs.)
If Match Duration is enabled, Pro Tools only selects files of the same length or greater.
