It would be awesome if the Insert and Instrument menus had drop down navigation behavior upon hovering the mouse on the given name of the plugin developer.

Coming from Pro Tools (Logic behaves this way too), it's much more intuitive to just hover the mouse and have drop down menus appear or disappear based on mouse location (it's usually implemented by drop down menus that open to the left or right depending on how close to the edge of the screen you are).

The reason I find it helpful is because if you open a plugin maker's folder for an insert and add it, it doesn't auto close, so if it's a long list, you have to close it or do more scrolling to get to a plugin that's past the previous plugin maker.

At the least, it would be nice if the plugin folder auto closed when you're done selecting the plugin, or auto closing the previous developer folder when selecting a new developer's plugin menu etc., but I do think an auto drop down menu where they open to the sides would be better like in Logic and Pro Tools for both the "Inserts" and "Instruments" section of the Console AND the "Browse" section.
