Cakewalk only allowing me to view one plugin at a time

Recommended Posts

Cakewalk is only letting me open a single plugin at one time. What the heck is going on? I need to see multiple plugins like always. Is there a setting preventing me from doing this?

I can insert as many as I like but I can only access one at a time.

Please help!

Thanks

Or pin it when it’s open to keep it open. It’s a pushpin icon on the top right of the Plugin window.

I like that they close automatically now and use the pin to keep specific ones open.

Yes . . . you're referring to "Recycle Plugin Windows" in preferences.

I believe if you leave this on, you have to hold down Ctrl key to open multiple plugin windows.

If you have it off, it works the old way.

From the documentation:

Recycle Plug-In Windows. By default, Cakewalk recycles the currently-open plug-in window when you open a new plug-in UI, and all previously open plug-in windows are closed. This prevents Cakewalk from being filled with numerous open plug-in windows, and you don’t have to manually close plug-in windows that are no longer needed.

If you prefer to always open a separate window for each plug-in, clear the Recycle Plug-In Windows check box.

To toggle the current behavior, hold down the CTRL key when you open a plug-in UI:

If Recycle Plug-In Windows is enabled when you hold down the CTRL key to open a plug-in, all other open plug-in widows also become pinned.

If Recycle Plug-In Windows is disabled when you hold down the CTRL key to open a plug-in, all other open plug-in widows close, and the new plug-in window is unpinned.

You can also pin individual plug-in windows so they remain open when you open another plug-in window. To do so, click the Pin Plug-In Window button  on the plug-in property page.

Pinning windows is the only way you can have multiple plug-in windows open simultaneously.

Note: Plug-ins that are docked in the MultiDock are not affected by the Recycle Plug-In Windows setting. Docked plug-ins are automatically pinned and cannot be unpinned. To dock a plug-in window, hold down the CTRL key and drag the window to the MultiDock.

Note: Plug-in window recycling is disabled when loading projects, which ensures that projects open with all previously open windows.
