When I set my mixer to "always on top" in C6, the Plugin Windows disappear behind the mixer. If I open a second Plugin, the first one disappears behind the mixer and only the last opened shows. I don´t see a difference to C7 behaviour here...
That's odd, I don't have that problem in 6.5.
Not sure, but wasn't the "full screen" mixer introduced in 7.0 ?
Maybe there's a connection.
I've always been using child windows inside the main window stretched across the two main (identical) screens, the smaller 3rd screen (lower resolution) acts as magnifier for tiny plugin UIs, outside
the main Cubase window, but still governed by the workspaces, quite elegant imho.
That said, this should not be your only option, for sure.
There was a 1 hr+ 7.5 preview on a german site, incredibly hard to keep awake during all the childish crap pulled off by one of the participants, but close to the end Helge hinted at a complete rewrite of the window management, as well as a plugin manager for C8.
I sure hope things will be handled more professional then than the mixer rewrite in 7, with windows there is zero chance of looking away when they act up.
