Using 2 Push, how to lock one to a track?

I use 2 Push Devices  on two different midi tracks with vst-instruments. Each of them are routed separatly ( left-push->track1, right-push->track2)

When i switch one of the push devices into session mode to control a different track, the other push automatically switch to the same track and the instrument cant be played anymore.

How can i manage it to lock one of the push devices to a specific track for note input?

    I've been messing with this and have just come up with a horrible workaround :)

    You can midi-trigger track selections. 

    i. Cmd+m, select the track you want the Push focused on, then send whatever midi message you want.

    ii. In an extra track, create a short loop of this midi trigger and have it always playing, maybe every 16th or so.

    Now whenever you 'leave' that track by launching something else, the looped midi message will always re-select that track :)

    ...You'll have to stop the loop whenever you want to be able to navigate away from that track...

    If anyone is still interested, I've created a public suggestion/feature request which can be found at Ableton Centercode https://ableton.centercode.com.

    You'll have to create a new account but if you really want this feature to get attention possibly, take the 5 min to sign up and upvote my suggestion titled "Push 2 Lock to Track"
