Differentiated "press and hold" and "press" functions for the patterns button to make it work better with variations

What is the problem?

Variations overlap the patterns view, so, for example, with all the variations activated it cannot be accessed. Enabled variations may use the same rows as patterns do, so these patterns won’t be accessible without disabling variations. So, you cannot cue another pattern to be played until you deselect variations to corresponding rows. Also you need to select the variations all over again.

What do you want to achieve?

An option to have all patterns overlap active variations. One logical way to achieve this could be with a long press of the Patterns button. A short press would enable the current behavior where variations remain on top. Long press would have all patterns on top.

Are there any workarounds?

Thank you, this wish is in its essence very simple and clear. I have edited the description to reflect this simplicity.

@here thanks for another wish. It’s ready for voting :wink:
