Any way to make Custom color corrector the default?

I'm a long time user of Vegas Pro and love the fast workflow to edit and color correct. Some time back I updated to Vegas Pro 15.0. Now I'm so frustrated by the Video Event FX : Vegas color corrector that I'm about to switch to Resolve. Every time I need to make a color correction on a clip I have to click the Custom tab. The default is the Parameters tab, where the color "wheels" and saturation gamma gain offset sliders do not fit on the screen but need to be scrolled - which is also slowing down workflow too much. Why are there two sets of color correction controls and is there a way to get the more compact and usable custom set to be the default?

Parameters tab is not efficient due to need to scroll up/down:

Custom tab is compact and fast to use:

If there is I don't know it, but agree it's annoying!

Some time ago I made a feature request exactly to this point. Since no quick change is to be expected, I searched further and found a good solution for me. I leave the window undocked for Video FX. So it can be drawn big enough to always see all sliders and the timeline can be any height. The size of the Video FX window, I change if necessary by double-clicking on the title bar of the FX window. This also works for all other large dialog boxes, eg ColorFast2, Stereoscopic 3D Adjust. I am very satisfied with this solution.

I also prefer the original color wheel arrangement from Vegas 10 & feel the workflow goes much faster when I do not have to keep clicking "custom". I sometimes still start 1080p projects that have intensive color work in Vegas 10, do the color matching, and then move the project to V15 for other FX & final renders...
