Dear Steinberg team,
For years I’ve been really really really really really really annoyed by the fact that bringing up any window (F3 mixer, F11 vsti list, etc.) unlocks the main projet window, and for some reason, generally makes it bigger than the screen size. One then needs to either resize it, maximize it… and continuously lose precious time with this.
There is an option to make the mixer “always on top” (windows right click menu), which prevents the main project window from being resized (my wish), but then the mixer hides the vsti and vstfx windows, which is also annoying and counterproductive: If someone brings up the mixer, he (generally) wants the project window to stay docked where it is, and of course, to see the vst without having them hidden behind the mixer.
Most natural order seems, project main windows fully fixed as maximized background, mixer in front, of course, with vsts on top of it all.
Please make it happen soon.
You could make a right click (windows menu option) to “move the main project window to the back”, where it should stay at any cost, like a maximized background wallpaper. Permanently. Unless the users changes his mind or add a little icon near the three (diminish/maximize/close) little icons on the top right of the project window. Same effect, this icon would pin/dock the project window for good.
BFD has this when one browses its menus, just about any image software as well (Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop, etc.) as soon as there are floating bars/menus, users have the option to dock it for good.
Seriously. We really need this. We spend years staring at the user interface, we users, need this.
