    Making something "always on top" in MC6 workspace

    Prior to MC6, I'd developed a certain order to my limited workspace that counted on some tools (timecode tool and maybe effect editor, off the top of my head) that were "always on top" when they were opened in the workspace. That let me get to them no matter how much I clogged up my screen with other junk. Everything seems to be able to be covered up by other bins in the latest release. I may be able to work around all of this by putting more tabs in the bins/tools that I open (and I realize that needing the timecode tool is made mostly moot by the awesome customizable bar on top of the source/record windows,) but even if that all works out, I'm curious: is there a way to set a certain bin/window/tool as "always on top" so that anything that overlaps it is automatically under that item?

    To the best of my knowledge, no there is not. Sorry I don't have better news.
