When I add several files to "source files", all tracks are recognized and added to "tracks".
But I don't know which track is from which file.

Maybe, but this is radical change, make "source files" and "tracks" same tree control, with tracks inside file node?
As:

[-] filename.mkv
   | - video
   |- audio
   |- chapters
   |- subtitle 1
[-] filename.srt
   |- subtitle 2
...

Or, at least, some way of cross-reference between source files and tracks.
E.g., when file is selected, select also all tracks from this file. And when track is selected, select file with this track. It should be very simple to implement (but I don't know about portability of such change).

The reason why there are two controls and not just one is that you can change the order of tracks regarding appended files rather freely. It would simply not map well to a combined file/track tree structure.

Additionally there is already a way to identify which file a track comes from: the source file column in thee track list.

No, there is no way to identify - there is only filename, and sometimes I
get tree of subtitles with same names:

Right. You can give the just-introduced feature "select all tracks from the currently selected source files" a try if you want by downloading the latest pre-build for Windows. Maybe that'll help you achieve whatever it is you want to achieve.

No, when you reply via email then pictures won't show up in Github and therefore not reach me.

BTW, there's a rather easy fix that you can implement yourself: don't use identical file names. It's not what you want, but I don't want to spend time on this either. Sorry.

This is picture :)
File is simple torrent, of course.
