More window space in sesion view


When you add more and more tracks in the session view, the track window finally gets full and there is no open space any longer to drag and drop a plugin etc....

Is there a way (other than grouping tracks) to generate extra space on the right on the track window to make track insertion more convenient?

    Hit alt and drag a track, and they will all shrink.  If you are on windows you'll have to see what the equivalent is for the alt drag, it might be the same.

    The other way is to use cmd T or cmd shift T to create a new track first, to drag the audio or midi to.

    This is significantly inconvenient especially when the type of track is meant to be dictated by the type of file being dragged, audio, midi, some plugin instrument, etc.


    Anyone have any updates for this question. I know there has to be a convenient way to listen to a track in the browser and instantly put it on its own new track in 1 step. (Please help)
