Enable layer locking
In this scenario, I have a background image for my audiograms. I have several other layers on top (text, waveform, etc), and I keep accidentally clicking on my background layer instead of a different layer. Would like to be able to lock certain layers to prevent that.
Default settings for fancy captions
It would be cool to create a template for things like Fancy captions so I don't need to adjust them every single time in terms of size, font type, border, live text, etc. Or section headings, the same thing. I spend a lot of time doing the same things over and over on a different part of the script.
Remember Youtube log-in
Permanently sync Descript account to Youtube account so that users do not need to sign-in for each video they publish
Bring back Multi-track Sequence view
In classic, you can see the multi-track sequence view. and edit it. This is incredibly useful when you have background coughing/sneezing or cross-talk from one track which you need to remove.
Remove filler words in captions, but not in the audio
Sometimes I don't like to remove filler words because it doesn't feel natural or it creates too many noticeable edit points. But I don't want this to appear in the captions either. Would love to see this as a possibility or I may stick to premiere pro just for the closed captions
Make it clearer to move Compositions between Projects
I can move a composition from one project to another by copy&pasting the transcript, but that's quite unintuitive. It would be nicer if I had an option when right-clicking on the composition to move it to another project or at least allow draggin&dropping the composition between two project windows.
Apply layer position changes in Canvas across all scenes
Currently, moving the position of a layer in the canvas (i.e. Move Forward, Move Backward) only applies to the selected scene. It would be helpful to have an option to apply those changes to all scenes, like the Apply to All Scenes button in the Properties Panel
