Snapping to markers doesn't work. So... fixing that is an idea.
I have snapping turn on, and snapping to markers turned on. It just doesn't work. Screen grab of my multitrack session attached.

Yes, why can't we do this (this is in Sound Forge):

"set a marker for an edit point... second edit point... and then select the precise region from one to the next"
NAILED IT. The failure to address this incredibly common use case is Audition's biggest and most baffling flaw. I can't imagine why the Audition team (which I have a high opinion of) doesn't understand why marker functionality desperately needs fixing. Or not even fixing: It needs to exist!
The fact that you can't set two markers and then double-click the waveform between them to select the region ****** me off EVERY TIME and pretty much every minute I use Audition.

This bug report is a year old and there is no fix as of 184.108.40.206. I can unselect all other snapping options and still not snap to markers when I click near them. This is critical for being able to edit at precise points. And NONE of the snapping features I've tried work reliably.
I want to be able to zoom in to set a marker for an edit point, zoom out, zoom in on a second edit point, zoom out, and then select the precise region from one to the next so that I can copy / delete / trim / loop. But this is impossible at present.
Adobe Audition is a great product in so many ways, but Adobe keeps collecting our money without fixing or even responding to very basic bugs. Please, can someone at Adobe prioritize this?

Snapping just flat out doesn't do anything. It's impossible to position the playhead exactly on anything. So frustrating.

Same issue here. In fact snapping to ANYTHING doesn't. At least as far as I can tell. Audition 11.1, OSX 10.13.6.
Even if I turn off all other forms of snapping and leave only "Snap to Markers" it doesn't snap to markers.
If I turn off all other forms of snapping and leave only "Snap to Zero Crossings" and then select a random region in a (zoomed out) mono file, I zoom in to selection and see that the selection is not at zero crossings.
Please fix this bug! Thanks.
This is in 11.1 on Mac OS, by the way.
