How rename event?

Newbie Q here

Hi, I may be missing something very obvious, but how do I rename an event?

I know I can hold down alt when renaming a track, and it gives the track´s events its tracks name, but you also get the old name in parenthesis after, which I have no interest in what so ever.

Any tips in this matter?

thanks a lot,


In the info line.

There is an item in Preferences under Editing named “Parts get track names” which if ticked will name all events in that track based on the name of the track itself. Play with it and see if you like it ticked or unticked.
However, you also have the option to rename any event independently.

Yes, it’s there. The first item to the left.

Please see attached image.

too kind, thanks for the help



Now if we can just get a key command for this! Cubase 8.1 maybe? Cheers :smiley:

you can also when you type the track name before you hit enter, hold the “CTR” key in and it will change the name (event/part) to the name you entered

I prefer this method cause when you move events around to different tracks it changes the name of that event/part to the track you moved it to when you tick in the prefs under editing “parts get tracks names”
