C8: Zoom key commands lose focus after closing fade editor

Cubase 8.0.20
Windows 7 64bit


  1. Open Cubase
  2. Open / Create project with audio file
  3. Create crossfades
  4. Open Fade Editor.
  5. Edit a fade, click / enter ‘ok’ to commit fades.
  6. Notice, spacebar etc. works, but ZOOM commands (G, H) will not respond until top application bar is clicked.

Feels very disjointed and confusing when you’re in the editing flow, and certain key commands stop working.

kind regards
