Is it possible to make Controller Assignment settings for Insert Effect parameters only work when that Effect is selected or highlighted?

Couldn´t agree more. It´s the first thing I thought of after being disappointed.
It´s really a pain to use one knob to do more than one thing... I don´t have 50 knobs or controllers so if you use one for, say, panning and assign it to a plugin cutoff or something you end up moving both at the same time, one or the other... It makes sense to make it so that the knob only works on the selected plugin... Otherwise you just have to assign everything each time or do like 50 zones, select the zone each time, etc.
So if I have assigned a knob to the attack in a compressor and that same knob for the cutoff of a synth and use both on the same track I basically cannot do either in a simple manner.
Either I´m missing something or this isn´t weel thought of, it´s for sure not straightforward or "Logical"... I beleive it worked a lot better in Cubase.

I do have a question about the best strategy to accomplish "Open Channel EQ plug-in for the selected track" as part of my Mode-switch button that already makes the UC-33e edit the selected track's EQ parameters. The editing works (you can see the thumbnail update).
Is it a matter of defining it as part of a screenset, and switching to that, with the EQ window's Link button engaged?
thanks for any guidance!
Why stop at the EQ when you can easily open any plug in that is inserted on the track?
scroll down to the embedded video.

To get the right "learn" parameter, you simply single-click the slot button? (I think when I tried some things the other day, I was double-clicking and hoping a parameter like "Open plug-in window" would appear, but alas, no. So, it's simpler than I thought?)
OK, so, as mentioned, I've got my "5" button on the UC-33e set up for a "Selected Track's Channel EQ" mode to remap all 8 channel strips to control the 4 parameters per band in Chan EQ. They're hardwired in the Assignments window, because that's how I knew to do it (fader=bypass, 3 knobs=freq/gain/Q).
What about "auto-mapping" the knobs so that whatever plug-in I have open, the knobs take on sensible control assignments? Or do I need to choose the 4 other plug-ins I use most and hardwire those, using up my UC buttons 6-9?
I'm truly sorry if this is already covered here in the forum, but I did try a search all terms on "controller automap plug-in" and I get threads pertaining to products with automap features, which the UC-33e does not. So I do thank you for your patience, Shiv!

The modes let you use and re-use the same control knobs/switches/faders over and over again.

my problem is like this:
i go through and make all my assignments, and they all work beautifully. its brilliant.
and then all of a sudden, they're gone. they just vanish.
its happened twice now, and this is after doing about a hundred assignments. so it is really annoying that i have to put them all back in. i havnt exactly noticed when my controller assignments vanish, but it is definitely when ive started a new project, and i think only after i have turned my computer off and on again.

If that's not the solution, please post a new thread in the "Logic" forum to get help specific to your system/issue.

It's not exactly opposite either by randomly off seeming. Any ideas?
