In previous versions of Cubase… when there was automation on a lane it appeared in black. AND the nodes always appeared. This gave the user TWO visual cues that the lane actually -had- automation assigned to it.
=Now= in 9.5 lanes appear in the same grayish colour whether they have automation points or not. And the nodes do NOT appear unless you hover over the lane.
This is BAD because you can’t tell if a lane has automation or not without hovering over the lane.
