Whats your favorite feature off sonar platinum

Hi all i was wondering what everyones single favourite sonar feature is? for me i love the pro chan, as it makes adjustments quick and easy plus it sounds great!
Also what theme do you like the dark or light one?
lastly what feature would you like to be added to sonar? for me i want the boarders shrunk down a bit as they are huge and wastes alot off screen space!

Flexibility in placement of various views and panels.  I never really thought much about it until I used some DAWs that aren't as flexible.

Favourites:
 
Dark Theme 
FX bin auto-resizing
 
I wish:
 
That they would fix the "undo" bug  where it displays an undoing of the wrong action - how hard can it be ? 
 
Oh and fix the bug where clicking on the "clip" tab in track inspector fails to shrink the Inspector UI back down -again something that used to work just fine, so how hard can it be ?

My favourite feature is Aux Tracks

I prefer tungsten theme (Mind you I have tinkered with this)

My borders are about two pixels wide curtsey Winaero Tweaker - That is more to do with Windows itself rather than a Sonar thing

As far as what I would like to be added to sonar?  MIDI tracks to have the ability to have MIDI sends in the same way audio tracks can have audio sends (So that a single MIDI track can control more than one synth simultaneously) and an advanced routing table (Maybe a more advanced track manager that shows routing as well)



Windows 10 64bit fully patched, 16 gig ram .  PCR-800 Controller.  External PC with SW1000XG driven via USB MIDI adapter.
CPU: i5 4670. 
Video: Nvidia GTX560ti.
Sound card: Asus Zonar PCI card
Internet always connected.
Software
: Sonar Platinum (Lifetime with latest update installed) 64bit set to 24bit 48khz, ASIO mode. 6ms total round trip latency.

I really like the Browser and Aux tracks.
 
I was ambivalent about dark theme at first but I'm using it most of the time now.

It's called Freeze Track (snowflake - geddit?)
 
Mine currently is the Drum Replacer.
 
But I wish they had two separate controls for midi velocity scaling (compression-sort of) and midi make-up gain. Instead they squashed it into one control and it doesn't really work.

Track templates, flexibility in view placement, pro channel...
Those are probably the dominant ones for me.

Good topic, but I don't think you can pick a favorite in isolation.
Melodyne4 ARA, Lenses, Aux tracks,  FX Chains, Pro Channel, probably Vocal Sync as well, are happy spots

My fave "pre-X" feature: External Insert

I love the dark theme too its just looks better! Promidi im going to have to look into Winaero Tweaker so is it a software program for customising windows? also can someone tell me what ARA integration is?

For me its probably Melodyne's ARA integration followed closely by ProChannel.  My goto compressor is the 1176 in the PC and the QuadCurve EQ with the flyout analyzer is used on almost every track.  The fact that the PC interface is integrated right into the console view makes it so easy to use, especially when doing complimentary EQ on tracks.  I think that integration is one of the most underrated aspects of the ProChannel.

Another couple:
 
Background VST scanning. It's neat to add another VST with Sonar up and have Sonar detect that I added it to one of the search folders, add it and voila I can use it on the fly.
 
Lifetime Updates also and Mix Recall (If I remember to use it)
