Optional confirmation dialogues and UI "Modes"

I know Skippy isn't keen on them, and I understand the reasoning, but for me I would still like the ability to have some confirm or cancel dialogue boxes in certain situations - I've just spent 20 minutes building a patch only to accidentally wipe it all out because the keyboard didn't register the shift button 🙁

So rather than have these baked in across the board and annoy people, perhaps they could be turned on or off by the user in the settings menu?

Even better would be the introduction of "Modes" where you can restrict the UI as well as turn on or off dialogues for each situation. In its most basic form you would have two Modes, an A and a B, and the behaviour of certain aspects could be customised in each.

For example I could set up Mode A to be my performance mode, where the only thing I can do within the interface is mute layers or change volume, and all confirmation dialogue boxes are turned off. Mode B could have all editing enabled, as well as all the dialogue boxes turned on for safety when clicking on a preset in the browser without a modifier button.

If you extrapolate this out further and allowed more than 2 Modes, you could create one that lets you lock the first 3 layers in place, so that when you're browsing other patches they remain, and all the others are swapped out, allowing you to blend patches in a fast new way.

@el-mono Interesting ideas. I've added them to my Feature Requests list.

lock layers

Nice. I would just suggest 'pin' rather than 'lock'.

Unify certainly looks to be great for both sound design and performance so two modes would make sense.

Pin could work. The main problem I'm trying to avoid is losing work I've already done. So if pin achieves that then sure, as long as none of the parameters that I've already sorted change when the new patch is combined, I'm thinking specifically master and aux layers for that instance, but would apply to all layers.
