The v9.5.40 update got me over the 1.99GB threshold!!!
[fireworks, confetti, orchestral fanfare, &c.]
I’m very grateful to the folks on this forum and on the dev team who worked directly on the code and/or made sure that the issue was at least brought to the attention of the right people.
There’s been a lot of grousing about the v9.5.40/41 updates, not to mention Steinberg’s responsiveness to users in general, so I just want to highlight this instance where a specific problem was brought to Steinberg’s attention, questions were asked, data was supplied, and the problem got fixed pretty damn quickly.
I can only assume that this was an easier issue to resolve than the publicly-acknowledged and ‘still-under-construction’ ones . . . but it’s still an amazing feeling when one’s own insurmountable workflow-destroying malfunction in a critically important program turns out to be (relatively) easily fixable . . . and then actually gets fixed, in relatively short order, by a helpful and attentive dev team.
Speaking of which . . . er, of whom . . . the dev team doesn’t get nearly enough love and appreciation for the work that they do constantly maintaining/creating/repairing a mind-bogglingly-complex body of code. THANKS AGAIN FROM MEEEEEEEEEEEEE FOR THIIIIIIIIIIIIS!!!
NEXT ORDER OF BUSINESS: so, uh . . . what can be done about that 3.98GB threshold . . .
It looks like my template .cpr, if built to its full desired size, would probably run somewhere between 6GB and 8GB…
