Make an option to enable/disable Audio Clips while recording

In newer versions, when you press stop while recording, and then hit record again, the track will be split into segments, i.e. Audio1#1 Audio 1#2 Audio 1#3
The way to avoid it is to either press Pause instead of Stop, or Select > All, Edit > Audio Clips > Join after the entire thing has been recorded.

While I do understand the value of this automatic splitting for some workflows, for others like voice overs, narrations or audio books, this is an annoyance, not a feature, and adds more steps to the workflow which were not required before. From productivity point of view, this is a downgrade.

Could we have a simple tick in the options to enable or disable this auto clip?
