Still getting my bearings with the new version, so if my question is obvious (or has already been addressed) I offer apologies.
In 6.5, you could easily tell at a glance which channel used effects or EQ because the “insert state” button would highlight in blue. Bypassing all effects is easily done by clicking that button, which turns yellow. Very easy and very fast.
In v7, the effects are accessed via the “E” button (never mind that I hate all the extra clicking the new plugin system requires - sure miss the fly-out list!). The real problem here is that the button does not show at a glance if plugins are active or bypassed: the button remains gray.
I very much rely on being being able to tell at a glance which channels have plugins. Is this pilot error, an omission, or (God forbid) intentional?
