score editor record enable button

I’ve used N2,3,4,and 6 and the same problem has existed and wondered if it’s fixed in N7. When opening Score Editor for a midi track, the record enable button comes on by itself. That is very problematic. I know in the preferences there is a checkbox for record enable selected track. That checkbox has no effect. Problem remains whether box is checked or not. Also, can score editor be set to “always on top”? That used to be a possibility but not in N6. Thanks.
