Since C10, many users are seeing a bug with SHIFT+P as reported in these threads;
I just realized no one suggested a simple workaround (and actual cause) for this.
I know how annoying this is, I think most of you seeing this wants the old behaviour back instead of seeing the little window to enter a position and pressing enter twice.
You can work around this by using the following simple macro;
1.Transport - Panel [F2]
2.Transport - Panel [F2]
3.Transport - Enter Project Cursor position [SHIFT + P]
Assign this to [SHIFT+P] instead then it will feel like used to be.
By pressing [F2] twice, you can assure the transport panel is focused. And if the bar was closed, nothing will be affected.
Then by the last command - [SHIFT+P], it lets you enter the position directly to the panel.
The only side effect is that you lose focus from the last window you were working on, causes an unnecessary mouse click.
But somehow you will find this side effect isn’t very annoying, it feels almost transparent.
This problem happens when there is the transport bar [F2] shown on-screen and the transport window is not focused.
I.e. If you are using the new transport ‘zone’, you are not seeing it at all. Also if you opened the panel before entering [SHIFT+P], it works no problem.
These conditions made this bug a bit random to repro.
I guess that’s why no one wrote a solid repro steps and/or built the workaround above. I’d say this is a Level2 bug to nail.
So please try. But as I would like this to be fixed, anyone finds this useful please reply to this thread to let
Steinberg know there are still users who prefer F2 transport instead of the transport zone, at least until the zone is implemented to all editor windows.
