I really like the way patch cords are now rendered behind objects for locked patches.
But.. I would love it even more if they also appeared like that for unlocked patchers! I guess it was designed like this because it might get you into trouble with objects like panel, but could we have an option for this please with a shortcut key?
Any serious Max user would probably consider it sloppy patching when you get your wires to cross objects, but looking at the new locked patches I realize it doesn't have to look bad at all as long as the wires run behind the objects!
It also would make patching even quicker if you don't have to worry about wires crossing in front of objects.
