I'm doing this on a Mac, but it's a bit of an ugly hack and fairly complicated.
I'm on Pitstop 12. It's possible something changed in one of the later versions that would prevent this from working. There is a delay value set in the top line that may need to be increased if it doesn't work.
Thank you Kyle. That work perfectly on the PC (Pitstop 2019). I did tweek it to have it open to the Global Changes, but that was an easy change. Now if I could only have the Pitstop tool palette open as the default.
Do you mean the inspector palette, or the place where you see things like the eye dropper and the "edit path" tool?
On my version, the inspector is strangely missing from the menu bar, even though the "PitStop Pro" menu flashes when I press cmd+option+I. If it's the inspector you want and it actually appears in your menu bar, there's a way to find out how to invoke it.
That might be doable. The method I prefer is to put all of the commonly used Pitstop tools in the "quick tools" toolbar (View > Show/Hide > Toolbar Items > Show Quick Tools/Customize Quick Tools...). I have about 16 things there and rarely need to open the tool panes. I still miss the older versions of Acrobat with toolbars that weren't glued to the document window. In the good old days, I could devote most of the primary monitor to the document and have most everything I needed a click away on an adjacent monitor.
