When I'm working on a project, I like to customize the information displayed in the bin. I've created custom settings for the metadata but it would be great if that selection, (and order of colums), automatically became the default for the project. A small thing but annoying to have to reselect my saved settings each time I open the project for editing.
I believe CS4 is designed to do what you desire. Im not at the office now in from of a machine, but I m fairly certain it makes the project bins sticky, or there is a setting to do so.

That is not normal. You may have to do it for each new priject, but created projects should retain these settings between edit sessions. If they're not for you, something is wrong.
One thing on my wishlist...on the crop tool, add a edge feather option. Or just allow the edge feather tool to work on cropped clips. Also native AVC-Intra support, better keying tools, color correction tools that allow you to see the shot before and/or after the shot you're working on, and the ability to import PPro projects into Audition much like you can import projects into ProTools.
