I love simple things and improved workflow so here’s a simple suggestion for the track effect chain.
It will look like this as default without the effect list shown.
When you move the mouse over a spot where you can insert a FX a plus sign appear.
Click on the plus sign and the VST FX list box appear.
Search for your FX, the most probable/suggested will be highlighted while you type and you can just press enter to insert it.
Et voilà. You have your effect inserted just where you want it so you don’t have to drag it in place and we have removed a piece of clutter at the same time.
Maybe this is already possible with keyboard shortcuts but I’m not great at remembering the millions shortcuts the would make life easy unfortunately.
