Are you sure about "SubSubZone"? Perhaps "SubZone1" "SubZone2" etc

It would be nice to be able to jump directly to SubZone2 without having to DrillDown through SubZone1. I guess i'm asking for direct SubZone access in the same manner as direct Zone or Page access.

What do you think?
Yeah, I clearly did a terrible job of explaining this, you do have direct access, SubZone and SubSubZone are just arbitrary names I used (obviously to no good effect)

It's extremely simple:

   DrillDownButton GoSubZone "VST: ReaComp (Cockos)" ReaCompSubZone
Just means Activate the Zone named ReaCompSubZone.

There is nothing special in the Zone names, hell, you could even say this although it's probably not the wisest move:

   DrillDownButton GoSubZone "VST: ReaComp (Cockos)" Home
The parameter "VST: ReaComp (Cockos)" is the simply name of the parent Zone that you are registering this Zone with.

So the line above says Activate Home, just like usual.

The addition is the fact that when "VST: ReaComp (Cockos)" is Deactivated, Home also gets Deactivated

It's really just a tag that says "I belong to this group, so when my parent Deactivates, so should I".
