Saving status of plugin window with the project

Post by Okke » Thu Sep 21, 2006 2:32 pm

(Sorry but I could not find this here by means of 'Search'. Also I originally posted this on the beta forum)


Q: Could the states of the plug-in windows be saved with the project please?


When I open an project on which I worked earlier, I have to re-OPEN all the plug-in windows manually, instead of being able to re-SHOW them by means of the useful short-cut ctrl-p.

In my projects I have maybe 20 plugins or more. I know you have to OPEN the windows manually when you start them up (or they are automatically opened on loading, that's an adjustable 'preference') .

From then on, but only during this particular working session, Live remembers which plugins were opened and wil show and hide them all with ctrl-P, for instance 3 out of the 5 plugins that were opened initially.

The point is that this is not saved with the project. I have a shortcut for each track and when I open a project and select a particular track, I want it to SHOW my 6 out of 9 plugins as in the opened state that I left them in 'yesterday', by default - or at least by pressing ctrl-P again.

+1 for this.

perhaps there could also be an option to show the plugin window for which ever track is highlighted? i know this can be done by enabling multiple plug in windows and auto hide, but this doesn't work properly with the "automap follows focus" option of the novation SL automap software.

show/hide plugin window should be midi-mapable (mappable?)
