Keep visible lane editable while effects block parameters are displayed

CoreOS: 1.4.1

When a block is selected from the Grid, and its parameters overlay is displayed, its corresponding lane is visible at the top of the screen. However, that lane and its blocks are disabled (non-interactive) until the parameters overlay is closed again. (In Windows terminology, the parameters overlay is “modal”.) It would be very helpful, and IMO more intuitive, if the blocks of the visible lane could be selected (changing the contents of the parameters overlay), moved, etc. Is this possible, and has NDSP considered making this change?

Thank you!
