Default add new track: take over "track-view visibility"

------------------------------------------------------------------------
background
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Every time we add a new track we have to correct ALL
"track-views" regarding the visibility:

If you have many many tracks, you don't wanna see
all these tracks in the mixer at once. Instead you would
split the mixer into different "small submixer". For instance,
you have a submixer for guitars, for vocals, for violins, for brass,
for groups and for sends etc.

In Reaper we can put these "small submixer" into practice by
using the visibility-parameter in the "track-views". Every "small
submixer" has its own "track-view" with its specific visibilty-
settings. This way we can confine the mixer to guitar-tracks,
vocal-tracks, violin-tracks etc.- and thus we have these "small
submixer".

So far so good. But what's the problem?

------------------------------------------------------------------------

The problem arises if we want to add a new track: Reaper
just adds the new track to EVERY "track-view". And so
this new track appears in every "small submixer". But this
new track should belong to one or maybe two "small submixers"
only.

We have to dig into every "track-view", remove the new track
from being visible in the "track-manager" and save the "track-
view-visibility" again. This is a tedious procedure (and I guess
there are already SWS-actions for it?).

------------------------------------------------------------------------
feature request
------------------------------------------------------------------------

In order to avoid the multiple "track-view" removals + edits after
adding any new track there could be a simple solution:

Every time when a track is added or duplicated, Reaper
does this:

1. Look which track was selected at last
2. Add the track-visibility of the new track to all the
track-views where the last selected track had
a positive track-visibility.

This way the new added track will automatically join
the "submixer" of the last selected track.

Perhaps too much text? What does not percolate here is
the fact that you can build up

--> different submixer

by the use of "track-views".

However this feature-request is necessary in order to manage
submixers in a reaper-project - if you sometimes add a new
track.

I second, third and fourth this request! And I like the previous suggestion, add based on last track selected. It should get added to all sets that already include the last selected track.
