Native Functional Punch and Roll recording
Like Protools currently has, and the great workaround Travis Baldree created: https://travisbaldree.com/adobe-audition-punch-roll
Punch and Roll is now available in Audition
Not sure if this will help our plight, but I just came across this:
Save Peak Files has been turned off the whole time, as well as CC sync.
Not sure what else could be causing it.
The only thing that's been fixing it for me, is reinstalling the macOS (which I just did for the 3rd time) . Ugh.
It seems to work fine for a while, then just starts giving me the Java errors.
Thanks for the help, though. I'll keep working at it!
Hopefully, they'll incorporate this outstanding feature into the software, like most other DAWs have.

You could try using PP (if you have the full subscription) for recording?
George Kastrinos - I want an official one too :)
Notes on newer CC updates and stability - turn off Peak File Generation
go to Preferences/Media & Disk Cache and turn off 'save peak files'
Also, disable Creative Cloud's cloud sync - it can be thrashing the disk while trying to punch in and cause delays.
But really, they should just add this. It isn't that complicated, especially if you can actually code it natively... My fingers remain crossed.
I'm on my 5th long-form novel, and I'm seriously considering switching to another DAW. The Punch and Roll option easily saves me several hours on each finished hour of work. Several hours! That's MONEY!!
Travis Baldree's extension worked well on 2017, but it isn't working well on the new CC update, and it's atrting to cost me more time to work around it.
This is essential for audiobook narrators, and it's such a simple thing. It should be a native Audition option.
Please, please, please add it.
I'd hate to give up a great software like Adobe Audition, but I absolutely will. It simply doesn't make sense to NOT use a Punch and Roll technique while recording long form pieces.
Thanks for listening.

Punch and roll in Reaper is so easy and works so well. It was one of the functions I have missed since I left Reaper for Audition. It is a very important function/process for voice over recording (and, I am sure for all sorts of other recording) and was almost a deal breaker for my starting with Audition. I could not believe it didn't have punch and roll. Please add that function to Audition!!!

Audio punch-in with pre-roll and post-roll - it's in just about every NLE, surely this must be a no-brainer for a DAW?

This is such a fundamental part of Audio to Picture. It's nuts that its not there, and a deal breaker on many projects.

Please add this if you want anyone recording ADR to take this software seriously!

When recording ADR it is easiest if you can record the line using a looping record to rercord multiple takes so that the actor can get a feel for the rhythm and then record it when ready. WORKFLOW: the rerecordist would click IN and OUT points to define the area to rerecord and the click the "Looping Record" icon in the interface. In Preferences the "Postroll" would be an adjustable duration (example: two seconds) that would extend the duration of each loop to include a non-recording pause between recording. Also in Preferences there would be a "Countdown/Preroll" with two choices - three 1kHz beeps in a four count (the last beat would be silent) that would start the recording time and be added to it as either a 1 or 2 second duration - extending the recording duration. EXAMPLE: rerecordist uses IN and OUT points on the timeline to designate a 2.5 second region on the timeline to record and clicks the 'Looping Record' icon. Earlier in Preferences, the "Postroll" duration was set to 1 second and the one-second "Preroll" was selected. When the record icon is clicked, recording starts with one-second three beeps preroll plus the duration of the IN/OUT and pauses for the 'postroll' duration and then records another instance until either the stop icon or space is pressed. The multiple instances of the record should be kept just as the current do in Audition but the clip would not show the preroll unless the front of the clip is dragged out/extended. The rerecordist cane throw away as many takes as they want or drag them to the Files panel.
