This problem is not new; been there since v10.5 or so IIRC. Just getting stuff off my chest…
- Left a project opened, untouched for an hour or so.
- Came back, had a listen. I made a couple of tweaks, saved my work.
- Decided I wanted to move on with something else entirely, so immediately did a File->Close but was prompted with the ‘Save, Don’t Save, Cancel’ dialog.
Weird. Maybe I didn’t save properly… Usually the project would just close.
- So to be sure, I pressed ‘Cancel’ at the prompt, made another small tweak in the project and saved again. Immediately went to ‘Close’ the project and again the prompt popped up.!
I was annoyed now; the program seemed stuck in a loop. It wasn’t seeing my ‘save’ command. So I ‘Saved’ from the pop-up prompt and the project saved and closed.
I shut down Cubase and re-launched. Worked on a different project. Without any lunch breaks this time I tweaked, I saved, I could close straight after - and no problem prompts…! Hurrah.!
Today, I worked on that most recent project again; this time left it open for well over half an hour, whilst seeing to other chores. Came back to it, tweaked around a bit, saved it and immediately went to close it. Up popped the annoying prompt.!
And just as before, from here the program wouldn’t recognise any incremental ‘saves’ until I acknowledged a ‘Save’ or ‘Don’t Save’ from the pop-up prompt.
The computer did not go in to any ‘sleep’ mode, in between tweaking the projects. The behaviour was seen with other projects, if they’d been left for a period of inactivity…
No harm had come to any project involved in the making of this report.
