Really getting tired of accidentally editing stuff cubase is highlighting for me.
Can you please be a bit more specific about the highlight you are referring to? Are you referring an event being selected after it is recorded (or the selection of the 2nd event after a split, etc)? Are you using the Object Selection (pointer) or Range Selection Tool for editing?
What options do you have checked for Preferences, Editing?
Nothing having to do with recording. Say I delete a part or an event or an automation point, the subsequent event always highlights itself.
Link editors and automation follows events are the only options checked.
I’m sorry but I am not aware of a way to have Cubase not select the next event on the track.
Try a macro:
Edit - Delete
Edit - Select None
