Default Have option to spill plugin parameters on top encoders or Dock

Hi Eddie,
As I've dived into the new functions of EUCON 2019.5 I've gotten used to it fairly quick. I really like the direction.
However the plugin parameters spilling on the bottom encoders as the default is really distracting to me because it takes away the Pro tools track Color Coding making it harder to spot tracks quickly.

I'd much prefer them spill on the top encoders.

Would it be possible to have the next update have an option on where parameters spill when attentioned from pro tools?

Like Plugin/pan/sends spill to top encoders

or Plugin/pan/sends spill to dock

It be nice to have the choice for those of us the have the S3/DOCK combo

With the Dock/PTC, I want the plugin parameters to always spill on the PTC side and my faders/knobs left alone on the Artist Mix or S3.

Yes, I would love that too... makes so much sense.. I've got a sneaky suspicion that the current (bottom row) was to make it easy for the artist series to have the same function.

I tend to agree..these were designed in isolation (before my time) and when multiple surfaces are attached it should work more intelligently. Also, the S3 should have the row swapped option. We have the rest of the year planned out but I'll see if we can do something before the end.
