both the Default layout and theSpacer layout do this.
Stretch either layout to the right, then move the bottom of the layout up just under the Mute, Solo and Phase buttons to see what I mean.

Hope I've been a bit clearer. Still, thanks for all your hard work, it is truly appreciated!
The Spacer layout pretty much does this already when adjusted to a certain height.
Please note that I'm unwilling to make new buttons at this point in time.
I'll look at making an alternate Spacer layout and/or a Narrow layout.
Do you need an expandable meter or a meter at all?
