By default, Cakewalk allows only one instance of each view, but you can lock the contents of most views, preserving the current view by forcing a new instance of the view to appear if necessary. Locking views is the only way you can have multiple instances of the same view open. Only the Track and Console views cannot be locked.Do one of the following:
Click the upper left corner of a window, and choose Lock Contents from the pop-up menu.
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, go to Edit > Preferences > File - VST Settings and clear the Recycle Plug-In Windows check box.To pin a plug-in window so it remains on screen when subsequent plug-ins are opened, click the window’s Pin Plug-In Window button .
