In a new format we are producing videos offering tips and solutions to common problems in under a minute. In this free video tutorial we show you how easy it is to have more than one plug-in window open in Pro Tools.
Using The Target Button
Using the mouse, you can just un-check the red Target button in the top right of the plug-in window. If you then click on another plug-in it will open leaving the untargeted plugin window open. If you think it hasn’t worked it might be because the new plug-in window is smaller than the old one as unless you move the first one the new one will open behind it!
The most convenient way to open multiple plug-in windows is to hold Shift while clicking in the next plug-in. This achieves the same thing but in a single operation.
Close All Floating Windows In Pro Tools
If you have multiple plug-ins open it can be slow to close all those open windows. To close them all in a single action press Command+Option+Control+W or Control+Alt+Start+W on a PC. This will close all floating windows so things like the transport window, automation window or memory locations window will close too.
