I prefer the length of tracks displayed in seconds rather than hours:minutes:seconds.
Sounds odd, but is useful in some situations, at least for me.

In which context do you want it to display seconds (in the UI)?

Practically any context.

OK, thanks. Could you go into detail why you prefer seconds and in which situations it is useful?

  1. When I estimate roughly the length of multiple tracks, addition of decimal numbers is easier for me than with a combination of decimal and babylonian, sexagesimal numbers (hh:mm:ss).
  2. When I need the length in seconds to use in another program, e.g. I'm looking for a track of a certain length for a video and this video (scene) is given in seconds.

I assume, that not many people would make use of this feature. That's why I put the option "hidden" in the config file. But I would change the implementation to look up the config option only once at startup.

Duration format: add additional formats
 * two new formats, seconds (See #1967) and full (see #1727)
 * rename existing for sortability / sense
 * sort when displaying in prefs
