I don’t know where to put this, let’s see if a discussion gets going and I’ll update the tags accordingly, because I’m not entirely sure how things are supposed to work.
Let’s get going.
In the new MIDI remote, using the surface editor, we have the Insert Viewer, where we can “Next Plug-in” / “Previous Plug-in” and then use “Edit” “Bypass” “Activate” to control the plug-in on which the “insert viewer focus” has settled.
Question: Is there, currently, as of .52, any visual feedback as to where the focus is? On which insert slot? (I don’t mean on the plug-in itself when it’s open, I mean elsewhere, on the remote’s page or elsewhere.)
Now, if I start from the beginning and “Edit plug-in”, “Next” “Edit plug-in”, “Next”, “Edit plug-in”, I’ll have 3 plug-in windows open on-screen. Good.
Question: Now, if I go “Previous, Previous” and start tweaking parameters, is there a way for the plug-in window that is being tweaked to pop up over the pile of other windows? I have tried this with Always on Top on and off, but I don’t see any difference. So, is this possible at all? To have each plug-in that is currently under control to pop up from beneath the pile of windows?
Edit: By the way, I’m not only interested in a “solution”. I’m interested in discussing the whole idea. First of all, if it’s possible at all and I’m just doing something wrong. Second, if it’s possible but it’s not implemented due to other gotchas that still haven’t crossed my mind. If it’s something that it should just work but it currently doesn’t. If it’s something I have to build myself (e.g. double press “Edit” so that the buried window closes and opens anew - but why waste resources redrawing the window each time?). If it’s a windows issue pertinent to how windows are handled in general.
