I have checked into GIT in_out_selection.diff and in_out_selection-2.diff
since they fixed a bug.  Thanks!

I have checked into GIT for the manual, the suggestion under NOTES + some
clarification as:

When adding a Plugin/Effect in Gang Channels or Gang Media mode to the track,
highlighted selected region, or In/Out pointers area via dragging the plugin
from the Resources Window the plugin will be added on the master and all
slave tracks. If using the Audio or Video pulldown, Attach Effect option
and you want to propagate the effect to all slave tracks, make sure that the
checkbox for "Attach single standalone and share others" in the Dialog window
is checked. However, currently when using the right mouse button (RMB) on
the master track to Attach effect, the effect will only be inserted on that

Under "Arm Track" description added (this should be added elsewhere because
it appears to be a long-standing policy, but not sure where to put it):

Note that disarming a track does not prevent you from dragging or attaching
an Effect/Plugin onto a disarmed track - this is not considered an edit for
this case.

I agree with Igor in that I certainly will get even more confused.  Gang
methods need to be checked out more by users who are expert on usage from
the DAW world.   I do not think we should add more options or flexibility
until better definitions are presented.
