One of my favorite features in Play 4 was that, when loading a template or project, all of the patches load without the status bar taking over your mouse/computer controls. In previous Play version I couldn't do anything on the computer because of this. With a 50 GB template it takes a while for my projects to load!

It's great, but the new loading bar still pops on in the center of the screen. It also momentarily takes over the mouse when it starts loading another instance. Not a huge deal, but it would be GREAT if loaded in the corner of the screen instead and didn't take over the mouse of each instance loading.

Even better, it would be nice if the loading bar just stayed within the DAW. If I want to check its status I could just click on the DAW, then go back to other things.

I just think since templates are a lot bigger these days tiny workflow features like this are important. Again, HUGE improvement in Play 4 (thank you!), but this would take it even a level further. Thanks for your consideration!

+1, make the loadingbar stay inside the GUI.
