At the moment, the panners seem to default to the pan view (Equi vs top-down) that was last open in the previous session. (Meaning if you have a panner open to top-down, close the session and open a new one, all the panners will now be in top-down view.)
In my experience so far, I would rather the "panner view" be a global parameter, so when you change it on one panner, all the others automatically change as well.
Also, I would personally prefer the view option to not be in the "settings" menu, but rather on the main GUI. It turns a 1-click toggle into a 4-click operation.
Any other thoughts on this? anything I'm missing?
