This behaviour has been around for decades, but to me its counterintuitive. It affects a few windows in Cubase.
Take for example, the VST Connections panel, or the Preferences Panel.
Lets say you create a preset and call it ‘my pref’ and save it. You then save either a template, or the project.
In both cases your settings load correctly, but when you look at the panel to find the words ‘my prefs’ (in the little black box), they are not there, there is nothing to tell you that you are now using ‘my pref’ instead of any other settings. If you have two settings ‘pref 1’ and ‘pref 2’ you wont be able to tell which one you are using.
It seems to me that upon reopening your project, it should tell you.
It’s a small bug, but it does blindside the users
