A way to open plugin other than the wrench !!!!!!

Post by yonhorizon » Mon Jun 04, 2018 7:25 pm

The only way to open a plugin is the wrench .
It is the only way
Can we PLEASE have another way ? Like in bitwig u can open it from the insert slots in the mixer.
Key command could be great. Also custom key commands.

I suggest Alt-P as Cmd/Ctrl-Alt-P hides/shows already open plug-in windows. The former which would open the currently selected plug-in/device.

Dont want to open previous window. Want to have A way except the wrench to open plugin window.
Today solution of click track - click wrench can be improved

Already open but hidden, not previous and only mentioned this to illustrate the context of my short cut suggestion for your feature request. It was not an instead of idea.

Thank you for your time.
Alt-p does not open the plugin.
Scenario - clicking i he repro in the mixer insert slots ( above send levels )
Pressing alt-p .
Alt command p does work ( to reopen )

Not sure where things are getting lost in translation

There is currently no way to open a plugin window other than the Wrench. It has been requested quite often tho.

You CAN hide an open plugin window as you have said using CMD + ALT + P

The SUGGESTION was if Ableton would be so kind as to let us open the selected channels plugin window, using a combination such as ALT + P could work.

Things to consider tho would be how you actually select "what" to open when you may have a plugin within a drum rack or several within an instrument rack. If you need to focus with a mouse first, you may as well just click the button. Then there are FX windows, how could you select these to open without using the mouse?

In my copy of Live alt-p does nothing yet, which is why I suggested your request could be implemented by Ableton with that or something similar.

Thank you jestermgee for translating my gibberish. I appreciate it.
