When creating a track with name 'elephant' and then recording onto it, 
regions are created with variations of the name 'elephant' (1.1, 2.1, etc).

If there are several takes until I'm satisfied, several regions are 
created, and easily accessible from the regions list (View -> show 
editor list).

Then I discover that I actually recorded 'giraffe'. I change names of 
tracks and regions to avoid confusion. Unfortunately the regions list 
does not update names accordingly - there regions are still filed under 

Is there a way to update names in the region list?

When copying and moving regions around, multiple and more or less 
identical regions appear in the regions list. Can identical regions 
somehow be ignored?

Is it possible to use the regions list to navigate to that region in the 

And lastly, does anybody have tips for good workflows regarding regions 
and the regions list?

Any and all input appreciated!
