Hi, thanks for your posts on this. I’ve been struggling with these same issues. On one of the help pages, the company says,
“HiDPI disabled: Menu entries can be just white (no font) until moving the mouse over the entries. Workaround: Move menu to other screen.”
What does this even mean? Am I supposed to add a second screen? I don’t want or need a second monitor. Garry, I know you’re posting mostly about size, but this screen issue is just part of the total mess this version is. It’s incumbent on Steinberg to Correct This Mess and not try to fob it off on other manufacturers.
I started with Pro 8; loved it. Moved to 9.5 and Cubase was getting better. I Installed Version 10 and I’m more or less horrified and disappointed. I’m not sure what I even paid for? So much is broken, including the screen font sizes and GUIs of our Instruments and Plug-Ins. No side-chain button on the rack (seriously?) Death of the Right-Click Power User Menu, the transport bar ribbon with reduced functionality replaces the cool, tight, pro-looking transport bar, white menus all over the place…and so on.
I’ll try to adjust my settings a bit more, but this version (Pro 10) is a real disappointment. I hate saying that, but that’s how it feels. I’m glad you took the time to post in detail about this. It helped. (Very nice music, btw, and Scaler is great, I haven’t been using lately and didn’t notice it has GUI issues. )
As far as learning another DAW, this is certainly motivation to look at that. Pro Tools being the obvious choice. I think I could transfer whatever I know (however little) about production and mixing from Cubase to Pro Tools in a matter of weeks of hard work. It’s all the same stuff with some different buttons, and some different nomenclature, but that’s all. I’m good with that.
Anyway, again, thanks for your posts and thanks to all who commented in this thread. I’m not happy, but at least I understand better what’s going on – and what isn’t.
