Thanks, I have tested it and still have suggestions for implementation either through script or built-in

My suggestions are:
Trying to create layers of priority to FX windows versus the Mixer (undocked). Or inversly, to make the Mixer have less priority over openned FX windows.

In this scenario, the importance of windows would look like:

- The bottom layer: the Arrange view/main window should be last priority so that every openned window hide it.
- The middle layer: would be the mixer which never get hidden by the arrange view but also always behind the opened FX windows.
- The top layer: The FX windows would be the top and greater priority layer so that they always mask windows under them until closed.

If this is possible with the current window classes it would be the best. Don't know how to get there but my clue is that Reaper Windows need an identifier that is related to layers of importance and visibility. With this we also wouldnt need the PIN for always on top I think.

@Edgemeal Thanks for your AOT utility. A great workaround for now.

Thank you so much Edgemeal, it works!

Don't understand why the Mixer has to be On Top anyway.
This was so frustrating! :-(

Please change this, Cockos!

Attached is another one of my possible workarounds for Window users.
Make windows in Reaper (like plugins) always on top (AOT), so they stay in front of the mixer,etc...

Downloads will posted in Stash/Misc, search for, "AOT For Reaper".

really hope for a native solution

Is there a workaround for Mac users to not get FX windows behind the mixer?

A HUGE +1 on this too. A preference to have plugin windows float above all other windows always would be fantastic...

Yes, there are definitely issues with window front-back management.

The issues of multi-monitor setups are correct.

Another one is that clicking an insert in the mixer should bring that effect to the front. The current behaviour is that if it's open, but hidden behind something (including the mixer), it will be closed. Instead, it should be brought to the front.
