There is an annoying behaviour in Cubase 11 in regards to Event names. For instance if I import and drop a file with any name into my empty project it creates a track with the file name and the Event also shows the file name in the upper left corner.
Now I can rename the track but the Event name isn’t affected (which would already be a great feature to have optional). Ok, then I highlight the Event and via the InfoLine in the very left upper corner I am seeing the “File” field. There I can change the name. But in consequence the Event name changes to the original name + the renamed string in brackets. That makes totally now sense at all. This creates endless text strings on events which makes the display of Event content blocked. I can disable Event name display, yes, but that is difficult then when splitting Events since it can be hard to see there the cuts are and anyways I want my Events to be named to whatever I want. Why isn’t that possible anymore? I recall it wasn’t like that in older versions.
Actually I was able to check this behaviour down to Cubase Pro 10.0.60. Again, that’s now a great feature.
And even more StudioOne (3 and later I could check) have this handy feature > right click on an Event (which brings up an nice dialog) and you can select Rename Event and BANG! It does it like a charm
Here is my finding: Cubase displays in the Event header the file name and a description. Second contains automatically the file name (=matches). When you then change the “file” or “description” only (=unmatch) the Event Name will show both, FileName and Desctiption and one is in brackets (). That can be annoying. So you have to rename the description as well to the file name or vice versa, so that they match and then the Event Name gets merged to only display one text string. Not really handy and smart. Event names should be more flexible to have the choice if file names and / or description is labled. Hope it can be addressed. Need to add a feature request. StudioOne handles it quite relaxed.
