Default Action Favorites

Would love to have a column to label actions as favorites to display just them when desired. Same with Reapack.

There's no means currently to somehow 'organize' the acton list, so anything in this regard I'd find useful.

sounds good, as long as I know part of the name, tend to just start typing it in search and there she is - (e.g i've been typing 'xen source' alot today to bring up replace source of selected items by xenakios )

but most oft used should def have their own little section.

It would save much time to be able to put away actions we know we're probably not going to be looking for while we hunt for the one we are.

How about a favourites folder system like the fx window?

Then you could organise favourite actions by task - recording, editing, mixing etc...

Why not just make a toolbar of your favorite actions?

Most of us already have toolbars but it's nice to have a pool of actions and reapack packages that are our favorites for use. For example, I went through the 5000+ actions and picked out my favorite 200, then made another 30 custom actions and now I'm whitling that down. Today I'm at 96 actions total. Not all of them are great candidates for toolbar buttons because of rarely being used but still nice to have at my fingertips.

Probably a/some section(s) called "Favorites" in the upper dropdownlist, where you can select the MediaExplorer/MIDI/Main-sections.

Isn't this basically what the "show in actions menu" option is for custom actions? You have the option to toggle this list in the Actions Menu.

You could also just e.g. re-purpose the extensions menu to be an organized favorites list.
