(I don't know if this has been mentioned.)
As we all know, in Preferences you can save current set as default. But what some might not know is that this includes the ability to:
1) permanently set the zoom of the midi note ruler for each track.
2) permanently set the note ranges for each track.
3) permanently set the midi editor to full screen.
4) permanently set the default number of bars for each track.
5) permanently set the quantise for each track.
6) permanently enable the midi editor preview button for each track so that you can hear the notes as you enter them.
7) permanently set an initial track as record enabled.
For example, with my Bass track, the midi note ruler is permanently zoomed wide and ranged from C0 to C4, but for my Melody track, I have a narrower zoom and ranging from C3 to C6. For my Chord track, the default number of bars is four and the quantise is one bar so I can quickly enter a four bar chord progression. Then I can adjust the quantise to overlap bars or whatever as needed.
The benefit of stretching the midi editor up to be permanently full screen is that it becomes more creatively immersive and saves constant adjustment. You quickly get used to using the open close button or the keyboard shortcut to switch back and forth. Or you can program a mouse button for this.
Furthermore, you can have an initial music creation track loaded with a dance piano where the midi editor is fullscreen and zoomed so that you can fit in as much as possible. Then you can take Avicii's approach of creating bass, chords, melody, and fills all on one midi editor, then pull each line out to separate tracks. For me, this track is the one that is record enabled. So everything is instantly ready to go when I open a new project. Just load a drum loop, open the midi editor and start playing the piano or entering notes with the mouse.
Another thing I discovered just now, which I have wanted for ages: In the Drums category in the browser, there are two Selector kits. (Not sure if I added a pack or if it comes as a default.)
