Alright, I confess, I am a TAB addict. I TAB as much as I possibly can, text fields, dropdown lists, checkboxes, window focus, I even sometimes miss having a TAB button on my coffee machine.
But not as much as I miss being able to use it for more things inside Cubase.
Open the project settings for instance, only three measly fields can be accessed by tabbing, EVERY field should be accessible by tabbing. Values in dropdown lists should be selectable by pressing the first number/s or letter/s of the desired one. Checkboxes selectable with the spacebar. Same for the export dialog. and probably every other dialog where tabbing would be meaningful. (except the preferences, it has the old look and works much better)
The highlighting of tabbed values is also erratic, open the Metronome Setup for instance and click the “Click Sounds” tab a few times, there are four different tab targets, two of them look like the tab itself, but are actually “ghost” value fields that seem to do nothing until you press enter, then you discover that they are the MIDI Output Channel and the Audio Click Level. The other two are the OK and Cancel buttons, the highlighting is barely visible on those. At least with the default color scheme, I haven’t mucked about much.
Please consider giving some polish to this in the future, if not to satisfy my cravings, then at least to make it a little less random and ugly.
