If I click the x in the top right to close the application, only the project closes. In previous versions, you click the x, and Cubase closes. Now, it remains open after clicking the x. Is there a way to close Cubase with one click, or are you forced to clicking twice?
No - used to be 1 click. Not sure when that changed.
Thanks for the input - but that’s not what’s happening here. If I have just saved a project and haven’t changed anything else, I click the top right cross on the menu bar, and the project closes, but Cubase is still open and running.
I think it changed at the time that it became possible to separate the main Cubase and Project Windows.
You actually can close it using one click, but only under specific circumstances.
If you have your Cubase and Project Windows combined (probably how most folks have it) like in this first image then you do need to click the circled control twice - the first will Close the Project and the second will Quit Cubase.
However it the Cubase and Project Windows are NOT combined like in the image below the the control circled in green will close the Project while the one circled in red will close Cubase itself. In this situation the red control behaves the same as Ctrl+Q and will close both the Project & Cubase.
That happend why the mixer changed to a non modal window, making it possible to move it outside the Cubase environment… other windows followed (Editors)
That made it possible to handle the different windows with standard OS commands, distribute them to multi monitor setups and open more than one projects at the same time.
