When I drag Effects into Rack or FX Return, the Browser always returns to the top level, Documents. This drives me nuts! Is there a Preference or way to keep the Browser focus where it is, when an item is dragged from the Browser?

Reason 10.4.1d4.

I know it's been a while since this question was posted, but I just found the solution in another thread and am putting this here for others to find:

Turn off "New devices get Browse Focus" Preferences. Seems like an odd way to describe the setting, but deselecting it fixes the annoyance of the browser snapping back to My Documents every time you insert an effect into the rack, etc.
