Alternate Pan control in mixer

Im wondering if there is another way to adjust pan in Mixer view other the then slider.

reason i ask is becasue i loaded and old project today and , at first the pan adjustment sliders originally came up looking more like track automation … a box the size of the track picture with a vertical line from the bottom center to the top and at the top a dot on the line… the line was slanted to represent the amount of pan on the track and a number value was there too.

i really liked the look of this and up there is a way to toggle between this view and the standard view .

it looked something like this…
