Improved screen real estate, please

Greetings,

The screen real estate of Reason is considerably smaller than it has to be.
IMHO, non-fullscreen capability and thick window borders are the culprits here.

I would like to see alternative configuration options for window placement. Floating the transport or hiding it and having a mini floating transporter window could help some too, to get rid of empty space around the current transporter window.

A compressed mixer mode could also be of interest: A toggle for a reduced view mode showing only volume and pan.

A configurable escape sequence on the left hand side would improve workflow. esc-1 for fullscreen rack, esc-2 for sequencer, esc-3 for mixer etc is much quicker than having to target specific function buttons, especially on tiny laptop keyboards where these are often hidden under fn-buttons.
