Zoom in to each rack
After using Reason for some time now, there is one issue that bothers the hell out of me and I believe it should be looked into.

I run dual monitors with both at 1920 X 1080 (I believe this will become more and more the standard as time moves on). When I am viewing the rack view its cool that I can see two columns of rack items however, writing becomes annoying when you are deep into the groove and working fast, your eyes easily gets lost and sometimes I would mistakenly adjust the wrong thor or compressor or reverb by accident because of the clutter.

To fix this, it would be f&#*ing amazing if there was a way to just click a button and zoom into a rack full screen so you can isolate one specific rack item at a time.

Maybe this is just a unique scenario since you will only be able to relate if you have a high resolution and dual monitors.

My two cents...

I like your suggestion.. thing is its quite impractical to implement..

Not everyone groups their instruments under combinators, others route several combinators together, whilst others use combinators in a simple way.

Thing is, I don't see how your suggestion can actually be implemented.. Do you have any ideas maybe you can clear out any blurrs?

I completely agree, which is why I'm sticking to my high def monitor (1920x1200) on the right, and a standard monitor(set to 1024x768) on the left for rack devices. I also never stray from one vertical column for my rack.

Unfortunately your request would require a complete graphic overhaul on all rack items, including rack extensions which would really complicate things. Unless, of course, they did it without keeping the items in high res/sharp focus, which would be completely lame. You can always dummy down the settings of the monitor you choose to put the rack on to help.
