Any way to make CW change track selection to the track of the currently selected clip?

One clumsy way:  R-click the Clip, then hit Escape (to close the R-click context menu).

Umm, maybe I'm missing something here.

Double-click the clip to select the track.

If track 1 is selected and you click a clip in track 2, track 1 remains the "Selected" track while track 2 becomes the "Current" track. But if you Double-Click a clip in track 2, then track 2 will become both "Selected" and "Current".

That does seem to work, but ONLY if I have

Options -> Click Behavior -> Double Click -> MIDI Clips -> -Nothing-

(I normally have it set to Piano Roll View).

The project I checked this with had only audio tracks. If I had double clicked a MIDI track it would opened the PRV and I would not have posted.

Good catch.

What you're talking about is technically called 'focus'  (name highlighted, target of a paste, shown in the track inspector) as opposed to 'selection' (number highlighted, source of a copy, object of keyboard commands). Cakewalk deliberately separates these two states. For one thing it facilitates track-to-track copies  In addition to just clicking in  an empty area of the track header, the up/down cursor keys will move focus if they haven't been remapped.
