Default keeping mixer view open

Is there a way to keep the mixer view on top when I click outside the mixer window?

On top, no(its a function of the OS) but visible, depends on your screen setup. With 2 screens(I run a pair of 22" LCD's) I would keep the EDIT window on the left and the MIX window on the right screen.

Just use the shortcut to go between screens. Command+Equals(MacOS) and Control+Equals(Windows)

Yup, that works great on a 30" screen here. Hard to imagine why you would need to see both views at the same time. Toggling between the two works just fine as the keyboard command takes a mere millisecond to switch between the two views.

Nope its terrible. That requires 2 hands - ctrl + '=', when you can just click on the window if it were on top somewhere.. I also like tab in Ableton where it is one button to switch views.

You must have VERY small hands or an odd keyboard.

It’s most definitely a one handed shortcut.

Well, 2 screens is my best advice, but a second option is a used Gen 1 Presonus Faderport. It has buttons for MIX and EDIT(labelled "Proj") windows(plus the rest of the features are handy and cool too). Maybe if you describe your complete setup, there may be other options

Default Re: keeping mixer view open

After many years of using the dual display setup for seeing both edit and mix windows all the time, I've now found that all PT windows on one screen works better for me. I can switch between edit and mix with a mouse click because I let some of the mix window show at the top and some of the edit window show at the bottom.

I have one 50" tv that I use when standing up in the middle of the room (kinda my sweetspot) using my controllers more than the mouse, and beneath that a 32" that I use when sitting down for more detail for mousing around, editing, setting up stuff. Also it's color calibrated for photo editing.

The reason I have all PT windows on one display is that it's easy to hit 'mission control' (F3), grab the PT icon and drag it to the other display, and all PT windows follow neatly*. I find it much tidier than my old way with dragging separate windows to different displays and manually organizing it.

*'Group application windows' in system prefs, mission control, has to be enabled for this to work.

Of course, this is on mac. I don't know about windows.
