Inserting a clef on multiple staves using the Option key doesn’t work. Also, if I try the same thing on other grand staves, Cubase crashes.
Steps to reproduce the crash:
Do the following:
a) In an empty project, add 2 MIDI tracks.
b) Draw on each a three measure MIDI part, starting from bar 1.
c) Select both MIDI parts and open the score editor.
d) Switch to Page View (Scores > Page View).
e) Click on the Split button (scissors button), located on the Score Editor toolbar.
f) Click on the right hand barline of the second measure.
Or… download this cpr. Alin89c - Cubase 12.0.60 project.cpr (107.3 KB)
Click the Clef button (Left zone > “Clefs etc.” category).
Click where the red “X” is (holding down the option key).
Note: The point is to click at the 18.104.22.168 position (not necessarily on the treble clef)
You’re right I should’ve said “click”, not “double-click” at step 3.
Yes, but in order to reproduce the crash, selecting the tool is necessary. It was though a mistake from my part. I should’ve said “click”, not “double-click”.
By the way, Alt/Opt + double clicking the clef also doesn’t work. I reported this here.
Then it might be a macOS bug, or a macOS OpenCore bug.
What I tried:
1. I activated the default profile (in Edit > Profile Manager…)
2. I started Cubase in safe mode (with “Disable program preferences” checked)
Well, I would expect to get the same clef (or key signature) on all staves, according to the referenced section of the manual (see the PDF/WebHelp manual reference in the first post).
Here’s how Cubase Pro 8 behaves (GIF made on Yosemite 10.10.3)—proof that it worked.
The same behavior can be observed in Cubase 12 also (but only if the first grand staff is edited; otherwise—as I’ve said in the first post—Cubase crashes). Would’ve been nice to see in the text that the user must adjust the clef/key setting multiple times (before pressing OK).
