Default Bump Master MCP track up when scroll bar is visible

Call me OCD, or something less polite, but I like to have all of my tracks the same size; consequently, this drives me nuts:


a) Just extend the scroll bar to the end. Add an option for the Master track to be scrolled or not, if you think it's potentially confusing.

b) Just lift the Master track up to match and leave some non-scroll-bar-colored blank space there.

Currently working away from home; don't expect timely responses from me.

Ha ha. I agree. But I dock my master elsewhere. That decision may have been made years ago for exactly this reason.

Couldn't agree more. This behavior is as irritating as can be, even after nearly 4 years of Reaper use, coming from Cubase. The latter has elegantly solved this since ever by using your b) solution.

I am even wondering to how much extent this could be the culprit of some strange mcp master track behaviors, such as its delayed reaction or erratical display glitches on a vertical redimension of the mixer when a track icon is set...
