How do I get old Macros back?

I have a bunch of Macro commands that I programmed in previous versions in 9, 10 and 11. They are very useful for MIDI editing, but they no longer function when I try them, and some are even greyed out. How can I get them back? I have the old AppData from the 10 and 11 versions.

In your Preferences folder, there is a file named Key Commands.xml, which contains, among others, the active key commands list with their defined shortcuts and a Macros section which have all the macros available in your Cubase setup, with their commands.

So, what I would do is :

  • Quit Cubase
  • In the Preferences folder, rename the current Key Commands.xml to something else or, better, move it in a safe place, just in case.
  • Add the previous functional Key Commands.xml one, as a replacement.
  • Relaunch Cubase.

I tried that with 7 previous versions of Key Commands and they still do not function.
I tried also the Key Commands folder under “presets” as well looking for differences in the Presets->Logical Editor and Presets->Project Logical Editor (all the files were the same to the previous versions).

BTW- the MIDI->Logical Editor does not open anymore. Is this utility broken in Cubase 12 or later?

The C13 Logical Editor works exactly as expected, here, including old presets of mine made for it, back to C6.5.5 or even earlier.
I am beginning to wonder if you shouldn’t reinstall Cubase completely, at this stage…
