You can not drag it enough to trigger the dock out of hiding, once again the elevated bezel kinda stops your finger from going to the edge with your mouse pointer.
Actually once I set up and calibrated the Raven I went for the pro tools icon in the dock but I could not trigger the dock to come out.
Hi! Sorry you didn't have a good experience like mpr3 above you! For one thing, the RAVEN is a hybrid experience and trying to access the dock with touch is absolutely not recommended. I just use the mouse for that.

What are you trying to touch on the edge? All scrolls and navigation we've replaced with swipe and gesture buttons on the NavPad.
For instance, if you want to scroll, use two fingers on the NavPad and scroll vertically or horizontally.. it mimics your trackball scroll. You should never have to touch any scroll bars with the RAVEN, or ever have to touch the edges near the bezel. Furthermore, you can do two finger iphone style zooms on the NavPad just like your iphone.. but single finger swipe is easier. We'll have a video Quickstart out today (you'll get an email) and it might help you understand the RAVEN a bit more.. we'll see.
Regarding touch accuracy, once it is calibrated, we've never had an issue with any accuracy and it's been absolutely spot on. When you calibrate it, make sure you do so with a natural arc to your finger and not in a way that is unlike your normal touching pattern. Everything on the RAVEN that I want to touch is spot on after one calibration.. the one in my room was calibrated about two months ago and is still perfect.
Regarding the screen and touch technology, it is all state of the art and the finest tech available for the application it serves.. if you want faders that respond to your creative ideas.. it's the only way to go with a 5ms response time. Consumer touch screens including iPADS simply cannot do that. The MTi panel and touch system is in a different class.
I realize you've had early frustrations, but in the unit's defense, you are trying to do things that it is not intended to do such as touching the mac dock, touching the scrolls.. But I would hope that you'd give it a few more days and do a mix on it. Edit some vocals, make some cool one touch macro keys, program some fader groups to pop in front of you when you want, automate some faders in fine fader mode and draw in some really precise stuff, tweak some plugins and mix fast. It makes me nauseous to think about how slow my workflow was before the RAVEN. Also, realize that some things are great for touch and others aren't.. Faders, plugins, edit window.. touch away. Small menus and small functions (the track and group list on the left of the mixer for instance).. mouse them. It's not cheating!
On your pic I see the PT11 mixer.. did you align the RAVEN mixer and try it?
But first I want to make sure that your calibration is ok and that there isn't anything wrong.. again, touching should be SPOT on. PM me your contact info and I'll have RAVEN support hit you up.
