well, haha, thats very true, but on the other hand: why record the smart bypass panel?
in the daily workflow its like: you treat the material, A/B it and decide “ok, thats it, lets record this”
then you hit record, type the name, and record. and forget to close the smart bypass panel or put it on C.
the record panel is huge so it hides also other stuff, and then you see the recorded file and realise that smart bypass was still on B with reduced level.
i think it would correspond - at least to my workflow - that the smart bypass is either integrated in the master section or a true floating panel which also stays on top of ALL other windows (it does´t in WL 8.5.2 OSX 10.8.5).
what´s genius is that there are key commands for A B C. whats not so genius that they are only active if the smart bypass panel is on top and that the same key commands are shared with other processes otherwise.
i´m open to suggestions, willing to learn new workflows, i still try to get my head into WL thinking, but its not easy also after 1 1/2 years of use. the functions possibilities etc are fantastic, but its not really intuitive, both workflow wise and visually. sorry to say that.
anyways, the smart bypass panel for me is a monitoring feature. why would you want to record it?
