I'm sure this has been covered before, I just can't seem to find the answer. is there a setting similar to Logic's "No Overlap" mode when working with midi regions? In other words I'd like to be able to drag a midi region on top of an existing one and replace it rather than merge the two. Thanks in advance.
I'm hoping there is an option for this as well, especially with audio regions. This, although minor, is one of the things that is preventing me from moving to S1. Being that I overlap audio regions constantly in my sessions, I see that greyed out area on all of my regions. This makes editing audio regions somewhat complicated. It looks like some regions are muted at times and it's hard seeing the actual beginning and ending of regions. Rather annoying coming from other DAWs that just replace the region when you drag on top of it. This should definitely be an option if not already for those of us who overlap regions all the time and don't ever want to play the audio underneath.
Count me in. The behaviour of audio regions overlapping is clumsy.....especially for a long time ProTools user. I can see why engineers doing hundreds of edits would stay with PT. It's also very nearly a game changer for me.
When you slide a region over another one then it should not just sit on top of it. It should delete that portion of it and you can drag it out any time you want it.
I can't see the benefit of having regions on top of regions.....you accidentally touch the wrong region and you've selected a whole track underneath the one you really wanted....it's a disaster.
I'm not looking forward to editing live drums in S1.
I love everything else about this app though but I think if they want a mass migration from PT they will have to look at that basic workflow.
Overlapping audio regions is useful for me when doing sound effects. There's an option to switch it on or off for individual audio tracks (Options, Advanced, Audio, Enable 'Play overlaps' for new audio tracks). It doesn't stop accidental selection, though. But I don't think deleting part of the underlying region does, either.

Regarding missing Trim Behind functionality;
Maybe these 2 Macro's i made can relieve you abit from the pain :
A) Trim Behind - Event on Left Side:

B) Trim Behind - Event on Right Side:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/fmth9vrmaj0oz ... macro?dl=0
You have 2 overlapping Events, the left Event is under the right Event:
Select both Events and use Macro A to delete the overlap.
You have 2 overlapping Events, the left Event is over the right Event:
Select both Events and use Macro B to delete the overlap.
So, these 2 Macro's are used "After The Fact", meaning:
You first did some editing action in Arrangement, causing 2 Events to overlap.
Then you use one of the 2 Macro's.
Sidenote, regarding "Protools alike" moving events over other events with automatic Trim Behind:
It is possible to create a Macro that moves an Event's right side (or leftside) over another Event and automatically have the overlap deleted.
Such a Macro even removes the need of dragging an Event over another Event.
You just need to point your mouse on the Event that is gonna be overlapped and then run the Command.
I am still (deep)testing this Macro but it seems to work already correct.
