I am using Cubase Pro 10.5.12 Build 123 running on Windows 10 and I created a macro that works perfectly until I restart Cubase. After every restart the highlighted function on the left side of the picture below disappears from the macro.
I can recreate this simply by adding a new macro with just a single “Process Plug-in” Function. The macro will still be shown in Cubase, yet the process is missing after restarting Cubase.
It doesn’t matter what VST plugin I am using, so far I tried several VST 2.4 and VST 3.0.2 plugins all with the same result.
So far I created a new profile, I erased my %AppData%/Steinberg/Cubase10.5_64 folder, I monitored the “Key Commands.xml” file, unfortunately with no success.
To my surprise after restarting Cubase, the “Process Plug-in” function remains inside the “Key Commands.xml” file under my macro function, as a matter of fact, the file does not change at all after. The unique identifier inside the string “Name” does not change unless I choose a different VST plug-in. So my suspicion that this ID could change after every restart was false. Now I’m not sure what to look for next.
I hope, it’s not a bug and somebody can help or guide me in the right direction.
