Inserts and sends can be dragged and rearranged in mixer window, but it's not possible currently to leave empty space between them. From a organised standpoint there would be multiple benefits from allowing to do so:

1. Putting EQ plugin (for example) on a same row horizontally on each track, allowing a quick A/B (on-off) on multiple tracks simultaneously. If all similar plugins are lined up across session, it's easier to see overview whats happening mixing wise.

2. Grouping inserts in a fx chain for a better visual. For example leaving space between utility plugins and sound shaping plugins on a track.

Yes! +1000!!!

This is a very nice feature to have for visual organization! smiley Coming from Pro Tools, this is very nice to have, BUT, Logic Pro X also behaves this way as well, even though you don't see "slots", they still can be organized that way in rows. VERY handy!

Yes, that would be very helpful.
Now I insert a disable mixtool to create this, but that makes loading a song slow and is a silly workaround.
