Hi gurus!

I know you can have multiple viewers but can you do the same thing for other panels?

In this specific instance I have a control layer with Slider Controls on which I use to control whether effects are on or off on a lot of other layers. Instead of constantly double clicking this control layer I would like to keep it open at all times in a separate window. I would like to have two instances of the Effect Controls panel in which I would "Lock" (with the Lock symbol as with Viewers) the one and have the other one unlocked. Is this possible? I have a feeling it's not. I could see this usable with other types of panels as well but it seems the viewer is the only one possible. Please prove me wrong!

Regards
Alexander

Click on the name of the layer in the title bar of the effects control panel (right next to the words "Effect Controls"), then select "New Effects Control Viewer." You can create as many ECPs as you like and lock them to specific layers.
