When I add so many insert effects to a track that they don't fit anymore in the tab-row of the floating FX-chain window, it only shows the tabs of the first ones, and I need to click a button to see the remaining insert effects in a list. I would prefer it much more if the tabs that don't fit in one row, would appear in a second tabs-row instead of having to click an unnecessary button to switch to those effects - or like in Reaper where all effects are always visible and on the left side of the window.

In addition, it would be very useful if I could determine that certain effects in the FX chain are always open and you can e.g. can see the limiter and the EQ for a track at the same time in one fx-chain window. As soon as I switch to a different tack, the window should update itself (like it already does now) and show the current effects that i want to see openly.

The easiest and fastest way to navigate between different effects in a track is via the Page Up Skip / Page Down Skip commands. You can assign them to a key command, to any MIDI controller button or to a macro button.
