It would be really nice if we had the ability to attach/freeze one or more channels so that it's always visible like the main channel.
For instance : I always use a SubMix channel, and I always want to see it in the far right, next to the main channel. If I right click on that channel and if I have a button to "attach or freeze" it, like in Windows Excel (freeze a row or a column), it would be extremely helpful, especially when you have many channels. Some could want to attach/freeze the sends channels for example.

maybe "freeze" is not the right word for this. I think, "attach to the right" would be more on the spot.

I also want to be able to "park" my Busses and FX-Channels on the right side, directly next to the Main Out.

(Seen from the right: Main Channel - Busses - FX-Channels and then the Audio- and Instrument-channels with a scrollbar, when there are many of them and the sight gets larger than the monitor width.)

Greeting, George

Freeze isn't the right word though. I would say that we need the possibility to 'pin' one or more channels to the right (or left) of the console.
Any channel, not just FXs.

However I created a feature request for this too in the past but not a lot of people noticed, it's hard to 'promote' a feature request, but make sure you all vote for that too, we need presonus to notice this.

how about the ability to split the console view so that you have independent scrolling ability. You coul then leave your submix on the right hand split whilst navigating the channels with the left split view
