You don't select tracks that are already selected. I was referring to the "first" time you select them. I'm not sure why you are asking that because when you do
it in the preset settings dialog it already seems to know how to deal with the tracks. Have you ever done "this particular" scenario with the preset settings dialog?
Here's an example:
I select 5 tracks. All of which have what I call "dirty" Titles. I mean, they are not simple/straightforward titles.
They are say, bonus tracks. They have stuff associated with them that are not in a format I like, (Alternate Track), (Alternate Track), [Live], (Rough MIx), Outtake.
- I want to change (Alternate Take) to alt tk, [Live] to live, (Rough Mix) to rfmx, Outtake to otk.
When I do this with the preset settings dialog, all I have to do is open the dialog once with the right preset. I enter the data for the
(Alternate Track) specification and "replace all", I then enter the next bit of data for the next specification and "replace all" again. In other words, it looks for the
specified string that I'm inputting and deals with it on a case by case basis without having to close it out and reopen for each string that I do.
Here is another way of trying to explain:
It's not trying to know how many tracks per each string. You are telling it what string to look for among the selected group of five when you enter
the data for each string. If I have five bales of hay and a needle, feather, dart and I hide them inside the bales and tell someone to go look for them,
the focus isn't really going to be that there are 5 bales or 10 bales, etc, all they will focus on is finding those objects among that group.
If you want to test what I'm trying to say, all you have to do is find five tracks and either insert or add things to them like /, . ,  or bonus, LIVE, Alternate
For Example, if I have a song called, "Love is a Wonderful Thing" I could make it a test dummy by Inserting a "/" to it, "Love is a Won/derful Thing" or add to it
"Love is a Wonderful Thing BONUS". Do that to 5 tracks with varied strings, then open preset settings dialog and just use that replace one with another
to change each string.
Anyway, it's a shame that the adjustments dialog can't do that. it would be quicker and smoother, toolbar button style!
