I have about 400 .rg files covering 40 songs and I could be mistaken but all of 
them behave this way. Another thing that applies to all of them is that they've 
evolved with versions of RG going back a good decade! (i keep working on them 
when i have time, finaklizing about 1 song per year :-(

I'll try this tonite, not on my musicbox right now, could be a workaround as 
all I really need are the numbers to know which is who sotospeak

The mixer itself is OK! Realestate goes by like nothing when you have 28 
tracks. One thing that might help is to show only the tracks actually used in 
the piece. This would also reduce the midi mixer footprint and might even solve 
the subject problem. But I'm no programmer so don't hold it against me if I 
destroy the case for artificial stupidity :-)

With a little sidebar on the questuion of font sizes, RG is not by any stretch 
of the imagination the only app in this situation. I always figured that font 
size in 'prefeences' shuld be handled on the user end as a % of monitor size, 
the points themselves being totally transparent, which would need a discrete 
interfcae (my 2 cents).
