Subject:Plugin chainer not modeless?

I upgraded from SF6 to SF9 but am stymied in my attempts to make the Plugin Chainer modeless. In 6 i could load a chain of plugs and then navigate between various data windows without the plugin chainer changing states. In 9, however, if I move focus from one data window to another the plugin chainer has to reload the plugins even if i have the same preset chosen for both windows! Arghhh... I must be missing a setting somewhere. Any ideas, anyone?

I see the same behavior between 6 and 9 when I tested this. Plug-in refreshes when changing focus between data windows but functions like Bypass chain stay enabled between windows.

The help contents state that:
"The Plug-In Chainer is modeless—you can navigate your data windows to change selections or apply effects to a different data window without closing the Plug-In Chainer." Same statement in 6 and 9 help contents.

This is representative of how the application is working for me too. Not sure if I am missing something with your question?

Thanks for your reply. I guess the upshot of this behavior change is that I'll go back to using 6. I use Waves z-noise with a lot of small files and in 6 i could instantly switch from one file to another but in 9 having to wait for Z-Noise to load each and every time is ridiculously slow.
Oh well, SF9 sucks as afar as i can see.
