Please bring back the option to play overlapping clips (regions) in multitrack
There used to be a checkbox for "play overlapping clips" and now it's gone. Please bring it back. Helps keep track counts down when making radio production and commercials by not having to have a new track for every single bleep, zap, and voice clip that might touch.
The Properties panel displays information and options for whatever timeline element is selected. If no clips are selected, the Session properties are displayed and this option can be toggled on and off at any time. Opening sessions created in earlier versions will also still display this option. Creating or overwriting a session template with the option enabled will make it enabled by default for all new sessions created using that template.

And if you create a new session with PLAY OVERLAPPING CLIPS then the mixing property tab disappears as soon as you drag audio into the multitrack window hence why if you import an old session from CS6 or before there is no Mixing property. This is just utter stupidity. its a professional tool and professionals like me and others on here rely on the ability to overlap and play clips on the same track

In audition CC It appears when you create a new session and then disappears once the session is created... I like many others on here have thousands of session I go back to and can't now hear overlapping clips and I can't change the session as the option has gone for any existing mix sessions ??? Who on planet earth would think that's a clever new feature... I should have stayed with Adobe CS6 oh no I couldn't because the clips then lag when dragging with latest OS on a Mac

This is now back in Audition 13.0 as a per-session property (see screenshot).

ALL OF THESE COMMENTS. I work with Adobe Audition every day. It's integral to my job. Now you're telling me I have to re-work years of sessions to make things flow properly? Ridiculous. People use this software professionally. Bring back "play overlapping clips".
That was a very helpful feature. I had to revert back to version 12.0 because you removed it in the most recent update. Why?

For sample based tracks this downgrade kills it for me. Now requiring to double tracks every time two clips needs to be smoothed out by an overlapping clip. Bouncing solves the track count issue but becomes a nuisance when it is realized additional edits are needed to be done to the original clips.

The "play overlapped" function is a critical part of my workflow affecting hundreds of sessions over the years. Single-handedly, Adobe, you make an unannounced and undocumented move like this and force me to roll back updates that I have to stay with forever else toss nearly a decade of work out the window.
I suspect removing this had to do with the way the new punch-and-roll works, but whatever the reason, PLEASE give us at least the option to disable PnR and use Play Overlapped instead!

I'm in the exact same case ! Why remove such a useful function without any alternative ?
