Making changes in Click Pattern Editor causes visual bug with Grid increments

Making any change to the Time Signature via the Info Line and in the Click Pattern Editor, causes the Grid to no longer display 1/1 and 1/2 Quantize Presets for that same time signature and for the remaining project duration.
Strangely, this doesn’t affect Time Signature Events that are located to the left.
The only way to revert the bug is to Undo or delete the Time Signature Event.

Reproduction sequence :

  1. Set the Grid Type to Use Quantize,
  2. Set the Quantize Preset to 1/1 or 1/2
  3. Add Signature Track,
  4. Open the Click Pattern Editor by double-clicking the + next to the Time Signature Event, or via the Info Line, or via the Inspector and clicking the Pattern field, and tweak any setting (including just clicking on a point, without moving it),
  5. Or, change the Time Signature via the Info Line. (for some reason the bug isn’t triggered when editing it directly on the Time Signature Event or via the Inspector)

Result : The 1/1 and 1/2 grid can no longer be displayed for that time signature, nevertheless Snap and Quantize work as they should, this is only a visual bug.
Note that it isn’t stuck to 1/4 either, as the 1/8 preset and above are being displayed correctly.

Expected behavior : The 1/1 and 1/2 Quantize Presets should be displayed on the Grid when selected.

However, we may notice that after adding a Time Signature Event, and before making any change, that the Pattern field in the Inspector is empty, and after tweaking any setting mentioned in the reproduction sequence above, the field will become populated. This may be another bug, but I don’t think it is related to the original bug, because only the edited Time Signature Event will populate, and we saw in GIF 2 above that any subsequent identical Time Signatures will display the bug, even if the Events haven’t been edited.

Anyway, I don’t see how the Click Pattern would even interfere with the grid display, as its sole purpose is to set the audible click pattern of the metronome. There’s absolutely no relation between the two whatsoever. Just another Cubase weirdness.
