Using Unify always now. Wish there could be a small button (hotkey?) to close/show all open VST windows retaining positions, and changed window attributes for Unify window to stay always lower than VST windows. Or VST windows "always on top", may be as an option in settings. Otherwise i always have to use ALT_TAB to find a window behind.

Have a look at the ops-button (concentric-circles icon) in the middle of the very bottom of the Unify GUI. It brings up a menu, which includes "Close all plug-in windows" and "All plug-in windows to front" options. These aren't quite what you're asking for, but may be useful at times.

Your suggestion for a "show/hide all plug-in windows" function is a very good one. I have added it to the to-do list.

I'll look into the ability to toggle the "always on top" setting, but this is very complex. For the Unify stand-alone app, this should be straightforward, but there are limits to what can be done when working in a DAW. Basically, DAWs are not designed for plug-ins that open subsidiary windows.

@getdunne Thank you for an answer. Is it possible to make a DAW management system to applied in daw version? So that plugins look and managed the same way as floating daw windows?
This "always on top" feature needed mostly when working in Unify standalone and OS start to manage windows.

I'm not sure quite what you're asking, but I'm pretty sure the answer will be no, because every DAW is different.

seconded for the ability to close all plug-in windows assigned to a hot-key, though i'm not sure how that would work considering host controls/hot-keys.  I'm used to pressing "v" in logic to close all plug-in windows for convenience and for housekeeping, and with a VST like Unify, it can get messy really quick with all of the VST's/plug-ins we open.  It would be nice to ease my carpal tunnel x clicking, lol.
