Well folks, I started this thread not to have a fight with anyone, simply to see how others are experiencing this new update.
I for one am having great difficulty with the deleted contextual menus and no way to customise it back to my pre-defined workflow, which has now been totally trashed and butchered.
Also I am having difficulty with GUI disappearing in certain windows which also have large and ugly fonts which make some windows not display correctly with some checkboxes simply not there.
I wanted to know how others are doing with this and if I was alone, however judging by the comments and many many many problems discussed in the forums, i can see that I am not alone and clearly there are issues which are not simply too small to forget about, rather these are every day workflow issues and very important to how we can make our living.
I certainly don’t appreciate people saying these these are "minor gripes " and being called “ignorant” in the same sentence. Surely we all have our own way of working and have custom built that way of working in our own little world to the best of our ability so we can give our clients our best. As soon as this is interrupted and we can no longer function because our DAW manufacturers suddenly decide to ‘delete’ what they consider to be unimportant and not give us the opportunity to customise our workflow, well that then becomes a very BIG issue and for some…unworkable. So being forced into a corner and told to work a certain way because they say it is the best way, just reminds me of the Apple dictatorship scenario…luckily I escaped that years ago, but am now starting to feel this bubble wrapping around me again. Don’t get me wrong, I really appreciate what Steiny and Yamaha are trying to do incorporating new and great features (once properly tested in the real world and working flawlessly) into their DAW. No problem from me, BUT once you have made your changes and deletions, at least give the consumer the option to customise their workflow so we can delete what we don’t use and include what we do, that way we are all happy. With regards to the gui and so many other issues, I can live with that until the fix comes, but don’t you dare tell me how to work and cripple my years of refining to get my workflow to just where I want it, simply because you think that is ‘not needed’!!! Unacceptable and Dictatorial!
Anyhow, thank you for your very kind responses, I really did not want any kind of bad feeling in this thread, just a simple discussion on how different people are finding/coping with this new update. I guess there will always be those individuals who like to belittle others in the process.
I for one have gone back to 9.5(luckily it still works on my system) until such time as I can fully enjoy this update with its full power without the issues I am facing.
Thanks all, your input is very much appreciated.
