As we know, NU10 isn’t able to save its Preferences properly. At least, I’ve been able to save one entry a few months ago which gave me somewhat familiar colors (although I have to recall it manually each time I start Nuendo … major PITA, but different story). All other attempts have been futile.
Today, all of a sudden, NU10 decided to destroy this single working set of Preferences for no apparent reason. aaargghhhhhh I get all kind of visual cr*p now, like transparent fader knobs, black inserts, black routing, invisible waveforms … in this state the GUI is not just ugly, but simply unusable. The only workaround seems to be to recall Nuendo’s default Prefs manually, which is no option, for understandable reasons.
I just tried to create a Profile with my basic settings - doesn’t work. The colors are not recalled properly. … didn’t check for other Prefs, though.
… apart from that: Switching Profiles is achieved by closing the application (and killing the running process from the Task Manager manually, one might add), which is not what you want to do mid-session, just for changing Preferences.
… which doesn’t happen reliably. Funny enough I got back colors for the fader buttons (which were transparent yesterday), but other Prefs still won’t recall, no matter how often I create/re-create/duplicate/save/recall Profiles and re-start the application. - Quite contrary: During testing NU seemingly lost my usual Audio Event Display settings; now the waveforms are shown in the dreaded “outlined” style by default, which I have to get rid of manually every time.
Something is fundamentally broken in this version.
There are some color bugs in the latest Nuendo 10.2.10. For example, I cannot change the color of the marker track no matter what I do - it refuses to change colors from what it was when I loaded the song file. Ugh. I can change the cycle markers but not the actual marker track. This bug was also in Cubase 10 and 10.5.
Nuendo simply doesn’t re-write its Preferences when it’s told to do so. Major PITA. To overcome the most blaring issues I took the time and edited the respective XML-commands manually, which indeed did the trick. Quite obviously there’s something wrong with the application when a stupidly simple workaround like this one can be used.
The marker color in the Inspector window can never be changed in either Cubase 10.5.10 or Nuendo 10.2.10. It almost works in C10.but it takes multiple attempts. The marker colors in the arrange view follow the color selected on the marker track. But you can’t ever change the color. I don’t know what it does on an unsaved song because I don’t have any “unsaved” songs, only template songs I use when starting with all my settings and instruments.
