toggle SINGLE track height (or individual track height preset)

I am editing a new project and just switched over to CC from CS6. I am working on audio, and I would like to be able to toggle the size of an individual track (this is something that I do all the time while working on audio).

It would appear you can create "track height presets," but the presets apply to ALL tracks (not just an individual track), so if you have 32 tracks, a preset you create will save the height of all those tracks "ganged." You can't apply a height to just one track. When would I ever want to apply different and specific height settings (other than "all tracks this height") to ALL my tracks?! The track assignments change for every project! I want to be able to expand and contract the SINGLE track I'm working on, and not by having to scroll the wheel on my mouse or hit a button combination 10 or twenty times every time I want to do this.

Is there seriously NO WAY to toggle a single track's height in Premiere now? You used to have the track height toggle arrow that would allow you to minimize a track, and then when you expanded it, it would go back to whatever size the track had previously been. And FWIW, this button took up almost NO space, so I can't imagine any reason for Adobe to remove it.

Please tell me Adobe did not remove one of the most basic and often used track features when "improving" Premiere (being able to quickly minimize a track, and then return to the height you had previously selected when you need to work on that track again).

p.s. It's also infuriating that the visual wave form is now presented as only the "upper half" of the waveform. Does Adobe just hate audio engineers?

This is my life, I edit and edit and edit and edit...
