Idea that might improve the Rack Navigator

I would change the navigator's behavior, so that instead of behaving like a mere scrollbar/navigator, it would also function like a zoomed out view of the rack that you can interact with as in the 100%-zoomed in view, but only on the devices at the macro level, not any knobs.

If you click, it selects the device you click on and scrolls to it so that it is centered. If you click and drag, it moves the device. If you shift+click, it selects multiple devices. If you alt+click, it scrolls to it, selects the device's track in the sequencer, and if it doesn't have one, it creates it automatically.

The right-click context menu would also function as normal if you right click on a device in the navigator.

These improvements would save a ton of scrolling and time.
