I noticed this as well.
I really don’t understand what’s going on with Nuendo. We’re all professionals here who need the best workflow and ease of use. Confounding, this is.
Love it or hate it, Pro Tools is a highly professional tool in the way it looks. If Nuendo developers really took that into consideration during development of new features and the GUI it would be at the top for me. I’m not saying “make it look like Pro Tools!”; what I’m saying is that serious attention NEEDS to be paid to people like us who work on the program day in and day out for a living, and need it to be totally pro and as intuitive/easy to use as possible (i.e. things very clearly visible, along with the least amount of windows and clicks) in its presentation and workflow.
