DoubleClick issue in Hub, WaveLab 12

I remember that this was earlier too, but seems that in WL11 it was fixed.

With “Hub” I mean Startup Assistant.

So I start WaveLab 12 and have Startup Assistant window. I have Project tab active, because I used it before. The Recent category is selected and I see my projects I worked on before. Then I doubleclick on a project and it offers me a dialog - “Configure your new project” and I can enter the Name for new project. I click Cancel and nothing is opened, of course. Everything is clean.

Then I open Startup Assistant again (without closing WaveLab) and doubleclick on the same project. It opens and everything is okay.

The same happens if I click on project in Startup Assistant, the Create button changes to Open and I click on it. WL offers enter the name for new project.

Not sure what you mean. When you double-click on an existing project, it opens the project directly, without any dialog.
However, if you double-click on a template, then yes, a dialog open, to name and locate the project.

With that being said, I don’t understand the issue you raised in your message.

Yes I read that in manual. Surprisingly it does a bit different. Please watch this short video.

In this video I do the same twice. First time I used Open button (twice), second time I used doubleclick (twice).

It’s Windows 10 Pro, 22H2.

Are you using the update WaveLab 12.0.10 ?

Of course! Yesterday upgraded and downloaded using SDA.

Can you confirm that it’s a bug? Or should I do something on my side? Reinstall or what? Please, try on Windows machine.

I just working on many projects almost simultaneously and it’s a pain trying to open every project twice.

What I see on your video is not normal and should be a bug.
But I can’t reproduce this behavior.
I will have to do some research to try to understand your case.

I don’t think reinstalling might help.
Though I don’t see which one, this could be a bad setting issue.

While ideally erasing all settings would be best, you could try more gently to only erase this file first:
\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\WaveLab Pro 12\Preferences\General.dat

It helped. Thank you very much!

But may I ask you to tell about this file more - what settings I have now lost if any?
I’m in a huge mastering/rendering process and worried that new settings may do something unpredictable.

“General.dat” does not contain any preset. Only options here and there. Hence it can’t alter your audio production.

It’s good.
Another glitch I experience last days (please split this thread if you see it’s important to have a bug report if it is bug).

So before render I select format from Multi Format Prests - my defined preset where I have wav24 and mp3 192 kbps defined.

When WL renders, it renders Wav default and it takes the format which is in Montage default. The result is - I have only one wav file in 32bit because it was in montage. And vice versa (before I deleted General.dat) - was selected my own multiformat preset, montage saved, reopened and I just needed only wav file, so I select factory preset wav24, after rendering I had both - wav24 and mp3-192kbps as if it was still my preset selected.

I found where it becomes wrong - when I select multiformat preset, the active format is single format (indicated by bold font in popup menu). Then I click Edit Multi Format, choose my multi format preset and click OK, the format becomes active (bold font in popup menu) and WL renders both files as specified.

I remember in WaveLab 11 it was working perfectly.

If you have kept your original (bad) general.dat file, please send it to me so that I find the origin of the problem.

Maybe that’s what you have encountered: there is a bug with multiformat selection (will be fixed in 12.0.20), but this is just a display bug: the multi format preset is selected (from WaveLab’s internal point of view), hence it will be used. But it does not appear so in the control’s display.

I guess no, because I selected multi format preset and hit render, it renders the default - only one wav file as if default preset selected.

Then, probably after I saved project and/or montage, the WaveLab found that selected preset now is default (bolded and functioning) and if other selected, it won’t affect rendering.

Okay, I will send both .dat files in private message.
