That's how I always open it. The problem is when I accidentally click down at the bottom of the Edit window and the $#$%!! docked MIDI window opens. I know how to close it, but after that it takes several attempts to get it to open as a separate window. Generally I have to close the session; sometimes I have to exit PT. Yesterday I rebooted to get it back to what I call normal.

Oh I how wish there were a preference to tell PT to never open a docked MIDI window.

Thanks for weighing in.

because this is the first thing that pops in google when you search this issue, and nobody has helped in any of the threads that you find, I thought I'd post even though the thread is quite old. click a midi region, hit "start + =" or "windows key + =" and that will open the real midi editor window. doing this will effectively change the behavior through the program so you can now just double click midi regions and it will open. if you click the small arrow on the bottom left that is pointing up, this will open the docked midi tab and change the behavior back to the dock for double clicking as well.
