Please pardon me if I am duplicating an already existing topic, but I haven’t found a discussion about it here. As you probably remember, entering new tempo signatures via transport bar was very easy before: you just entered the new value and it appeared where your cursor is. At least, that’s how it worked for me.
So it happened, that today was the first time I needed to enter the new time signature value with Cubase 8.5. I didn’t even expect that this feature was changed - why? What for? Anyway, now entering a new value in the transport bar changes the previous time signature instead of adding a new one on the cursor position.
Sure thing, I simply added new time signatures using a tempo editing window, but it’s more time consuming and pretty sloppily implemented (bug1: you have to hold your mouse cursor on the value while entereing it; bug2: when you press undo, sometimes the time signature value doesn’t disappear from the timeline, but shifts to the left).
In the C8.5 new features overview I remember something about how handy the new transport tempo and time sig display is now. I was expecting the ability to enter the new tempo (when tempo track is enabled) on the fly from the transport bar. Trying it right now, and it doesn’t do it, instead it simply changes the previous tempo value (the same as with time signature!).
It just doesn’t seem useful, logical, rational, right, in any aspect. Please correct me if I am wrong. Perhaps, it can be switched in preferences?
