Combinator - tabbed devices view & button behaviour.
 
I was thinking that it would nice if the combinator could switch to a tabbed view for its internal devices... so when the display devices view is enabled, it would only display one internal device (or 2 half-rack devices) with a set of tabs along the top (the top of the device area) for choosing an internal device panel to display. Sometimes I find myself wanting internal device panels from 2 or 3 different combinators visible, and with all of those set to device view (and thus fully extended) the length of the rack can make finding what you're after a bit cumbersome.

It would also be very useful if the combinator panel buttons could step through a range of values (ascending and/or descending), instead of just min-max values.

---I like it...it may not be the only way to handle the problem, but you have identified the right question. An open combinator is a real all or nothing affair, and it really gets in the way when you are scrolling in a live playing situation. One thing you can try is to move the sequencer over to the side and then select the instrument you are searching for on the sequencer list...the rack advances right to the instrument.
