An option to attach markers to clips in multitrack view, rather than attaching them to the timeline
Currently in Audition's multitrack editor, markers can only be attached to the timeline. It would be helpful to have an option to attach markers to individual clips, so that when those clips are moved in the timeline the markers move with them.
The only way to achieve this right now is to go into waveform view and place a marker there. This is pretty inconvenient and involves a lot of clicking back and forth between views.

The inability to anchor markers to clips in multitrack is insane. I literally want to change DAW. Why can't Adobe fix this?
Dylan Jenkins commented
I cut the clip and change colour to yellow or something, to indicate I need to go back and sort that bit out later, or something like that.
Matthew Schwartz commented
It is shocking to me that it's 2021 and this functionality still isn't available.
I'm a professional audio journalist with several years experience at NPR, as well as producing multiple podcasts for member stations and media organizations. Please believe me when I tell you this one change would be SO HELPFUL TO EVERYONE.
This is the one feature that keeps Audition from being a perfect DAW. *Please* give us the option to anchor markers to clips. The current workarounds make markers far less useful than they should be, and push people toward other DAWs that can do this, like ProTools.

Hey! Please fix this. Countless hours are going to waste in the world by moving perfectly placed markers!

Holy ****, is there no fix for this? I found a setting in the "Markers & Metadata" setting that allows you to "Lock markers and metadata to the timeline" with a toggle on and off. I turned it off, but the markers don't move whenever I move the clips... wtf Adobe, when you edit a podcast, you listen through it once, make notes on your markers, then go back and add effects and music based on those markers. When they don't move, you are constantly hunting for the next marked spot...
I totally agree with this. 2 years on and you still haven't fixed this. It wastes a lot of time going back and moving markers once you edit audio.

I can't believe this doesn't exist. Get on it, product team!

Thank you for sharing that link Andre. I have voted on the other request and encourage anyone who has voted on this one to also vote on the other request as mine has fewer votes. Thank you!
Andre Santos commented
It seems this is a duplication of https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911314-audition/suggestions/37768249-marker
I would suggest one of them is removed so that they don't compete for upvotes.
David O'Neill commented
Yes agree with this, but thanks for the tip about putting the marker inside the clip.

This absolutely needs to happen. When I record my podcast, I mark parts that I need to correct in post but as soon as I make one edit, all of the markers become misaligned, and they become more off as I continue making edits. Even adding my intro music sequence puts all of my markers off by almost a minute.
Søren Gram Riisgaard commented
I fully agree, this functionality is desperately needed in my work. Also agree with Sonja above, at least allow the makers to move when parts are ripple deleted.
Adam Morris commented
Agree. This behaviour should be the same as in Premiere. It's a real pain when working with multiple audio clips and you're trying to align things to certain beats
Sonja Geracsek commented
I’d also like to add that the timeline markers on premiere travel when clips are cut or gaps are ripple deleted. This would be the least Addition should do, if not offer the ability to add markers to clips. I also work on podcasts and this is excruciatingly annoying.
Ryan Clarke commented
I just Tweeted about this today and I really would love this to be added. I work on audio podcasts & documentaries and markers are essential. It gets quite annoying when you want to move things over but the marker stays in the same place in the multitrack. Giant headache. Please add.
Christopher Hill commented
I know this is old, but I agree. Similar to Premiere, we need the ability to place clip markers while in multitrack.
If you're not selecting a clip, marker defaults to a track marker. If selecting a clip, marker defaults to a clip marker.
