Default allow regular Item Actions (delete, split) to work on Automation Items

currently, AIs have their own subset of actions that perform basic functions like split, delete, etc.

this leads to frustrating scenarios like this:

1- a user selects all items using marquee select
NOTE-- AIs are selected, as expected
2- the user attempts to delete these items via DELETE key
ISSUE-- the AIs are not deleted. expected behavior would be for AIs to behave as the regular Items do.



please allow normal item actions to perform their function on AIs as well.
"split at cursor," for instance, and others

note that CTRL-dragging an AI performs as one would expect

unfortunately i'm not a good person to answer that question because that's never my use case -- i only ever have envelope data contained in an AI with the background envelope disabled. i hope you get a better answer than this.

edit -- i guess i agree with deeb, and would think that "delete" action should apply to any and all selected data rather than having discrete categories for item delete, envelope delete, ai delete, etc.

I think that anything selected should get deleted. So delete the item, the selected envelope points, and the automation item. I would also love if those items were deleted whether or not an envelope lane has focus.
