go to next marker, and select region (time selection and item select) if edit cursor is on region marker #245

I have a custom macro that works similar to this currently, only problem is it also creates a time selection for normal markers too.
You can view the example here. http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/6269/markergx.gif Thanks

I do voice over recording, and when there's a mistake, the voice talent just says "take 2 .. bla bla bla" and continues to rattle on. I leave the tape recording the entire time, and I use the region markers to note where are all the mistakes.
Once the talent is done, I can quickly sift through all the mistakes with "go to next marker" function and double click on the region markers to set my time selection, and using ripple all, I delete the mistake along with the region marker.
The unintuitive part of this is using the "go to next marker" doesn't select the region's time selection, and when I do highlight the time selection, I lose my item selection.
That's why I'm requesting for "go to next marker, and if region marker, select region and items within time selection"
I can probably create a custom for "select item within time selection" but I can't create "if region, select time selection."
Here's an example of how it will be used http://img28.imageshack.us/img28/772/rippleall.gif 0. Drop markers/regions throughout boring voice-over recording
Markers are used to indicate chapter/script/line/notes

Ok, I added "SWS: Goto/select next marker/region" and "SWS: Goto/select previous marker/region". They mostly work like the native next/prev marker except that the time selection is removed for markers and added for regions.
They don't select the items, but you can easily make a macro with "Select items in time selection" if you need to.
Have a test-drive and let me know if this works for you!

Thanks for this. It really helps in voice-over editing work enviroment.
1.Quick editing of mistakes. (done)
There's a small issue I found after test-driving it today when using it for playback scenario, to skip mistakes and listen to corrected recording.
Skipping to next region doesn't go to current region end, like the default "Go to next marker".
Here's a clearer comparison with gif file.
first is the default "go to next marker"
Perhaps it might be better to have a separate new action for this, as I feel some users would find skipping the region end point to be a useful thing.
Hope you don't find me bothersome. Thanks in advance.

So to be clear-
If you have a project with one region, and you run goto next marker/region, you should see:

Sorry for the long delay in replying, I had been very busy with studio move.. :(
Regarding the edit or play cursor, would it be possible to make it behave like the default "next marker" ;
Thanks for following up on this. It is much appreciated, and much more used!

I understand. Unfortunately this requires a rewrite of the code, so it might be a few days. I'll add new versions of the actions with this behavior, btw.
I hope the move is going/went well! Exciting and stressful at the same time, I imagine.
