I would cordially ask adding keyboard shortcut assignable commands that we can use to access the menus in the top bar from the keyboard.
I m basically a heavy (PC) keyboard guy and use primarily the keyboard commands when possible.
After upgraded to Cubase 8 though, which changed the windowing model significantly, I can no longer access the menus (in the top menu bar) from the keyboard. This has been very frustrating as the keyboard access to the menu has been a part of my work flow.
Suppose there is no turning back to the Cubase 7 windowing model, I would cordially request adding those menu access to the keyboard shortcut list, so that I can assign specific key combination of my choice to access the menu bar menu items.
For instance, let s add a shortcut item File Menu, I would assign Alt F to the shortcut command and happily hit Alt F to access the file menu. Likewise, Alt M to the Midi menu, Alt D to the Device menu, and so on.
This way, without breaking the new windowing model, we keep much better downlevel UI parity in terms of the keyboard driven work flow, when a customer wants to.
Hopefully this makes sense, but in case something is not clear, feel free to send clarifying questions.
