[Jeremy Garchow] "But this implies you only want one favorite, or marked range per clip? I think that fcpx offers a better way with allowing more than one in/out range to be marked/saved and recalled very easily upon return to that clip."

No. This isn't instead of the I/O F workflow. This is an additional method. It has no impact an other ranges I've created previously in the same clip.

Normally when organizing one might create keyword collections, smart collections, favorites of course. There's are times in the decision making process where I select a range in the event browser but, before making the edit, I either find myself going to the timeline or, sometimes, to another clip in the event browser to check something. At that point you've lost your range in the clip you initially selected in the event browser. Sure you could remember to this the F key but all to often, some of us have a tendency to check something someplace else and lose the range. The problem is in those situations, hitting the F key, puts a mental brake, an interrupt, in my thought processes.

Hitting the F is fine for organizing but there are times when editing, it's an abrupt interruption.

AutoFavorite is an additional way to create a Favorite (saved range aka saved I/O). It allows you to mark the range, move to something else and by moving to something else, that range is favorited.
