Hi all -
Since Steinberg changed the way Cubase uses windows on a PC (and abandoned PC Windows conventions) I’ve had issues with window focus.
I’ll do an operation that involves a dialog box and when the dialog box closes the focus isn’t always returned to the Cubase window underneath or the Cubase window that I was using when the dialog box was invoked. It will often return to a second non Cubase window.
I keep all my main Cubase windows (project, key editor, mixer etc.) maximised.
Here’s an easy example -
Close all applications in Windows.
Open File Explorer
Open Cubase Pro 10.5
New Empty project
Add audio stereo track
Open the import audio dialog and select a file to import.
When the dialog box closes windows explorer is brought to the front and takes focus.
Sure, it’s not a big thing to Alt Tab back to Cubase but it’s irritating and shouldn’t be happening. I’ve had this on all recent versions of Cubase but I’ve not seen anyone else describe this as a problem. Is there a way to solve this that I’ve missed or is everyone just putting up with it?
