opening multiple channel settings editors+multi solo

in cubase 5 i could open more than one channel setting editor by holding alt+click on ā€œeā€ on channel.
now it seems that only the same channel setting is opened twice.only if you again click in other channel it opens the other channels editor, resulting 2 channel editor for same channel and and the 3rd editor for the other channel :unamused:
also i cant open that way VSTi channels settings because it brings the instruments gui when doing alt+click ā€œeā€.

also i cant solo multiplie selected channels,with shift+alt like other functions(q-link mute, write etc) cuz it makes now the solo to solo defeat.
