Have any feature requests? No promise they'll get to Reason Studios, but you can still discuss them here.

Okay yeah this is just a great improvement all around. I'm currently working on a rather large track and every time I open the rack view while the song is playing the graphical side of Reason comes to a screeching halt since there are so many devices which need some sort of animation. I can of course hide them away in closed combinators/mix channels but this would be an even easier way to achieve this!

You can also use option+click or alt+click to fold or expand all per rack.

From the title, I thought this thread was going to be about ALT/OPT+clicking. Nope. What a pleasant surprise and how dumb do I feel for never thinking about this (rather obvious) feature all these years? Great idea. I hope RS will add it to Reason.

Yeah I've also never thought of it but it seems so obvious now!

One possible downside is it will unfold all of your audio/mix channels whether you need to or not. Some folks might not like that and might prefer keeping mix channels folded unless they have inserts. I actually wish there was an option when creating mix and audio channels to have them unfolded, so this doesn't bother me.

I wonder if there is a slick way to incorporate this idea by moofi, that also makes use of the Rack's section handle for the labeling and collapsing feature without needing to use extra vertical space for another layer of handles 🤔

Building on this brilliant idea by moofi and the comment by joeyluck I noticed the dock left button on the rack wooden panel so maybe it could be done by adding a new dock up button and placing the docked racks labels horizontally on the rack section handle, this way:

This would not be as pretty as the original idea from moofi but it uses 0 extra space (horizontal and vertical)
(btw I used the labels done by moofi)

Yup that's a great place to put it :thumbup:
I think this function would be a bit confusing for newcomers but I guess they wouldn't need to use it in the first place.
