Please, stop with calling it THE solution. It is A solution, and
apparently YOUR solution (and some other people's too). It solves the
problem in a way that works, but obviously not all people think it is
the right solution for them. I already explained why I prefer it the
way it was. You can go with the context sensitive MENU command all you
want...that is perfectly fine. It will solve the problem for a number
of people (some? many? most? nearly all??? I really don't know), but
not for everyone. I'll tell you right now that if such a patch gets
built in, I will continue to keep my own patch on my system until the
day that something else changes on the Watch Recording screen such
that my patch interferes with how I want to use that screen.
