There is a bug in media bay storing user defined result columns (Cubase 10.0.20 Pro - WIN 10 - latest update):
I have set up my Media Bay to show media bay results according to chosen column categories. e.g. Name - Rating - Tempo - Key - Image aso. After I set it up the columns to display in a certain way with the categories I need, I close media bay to make sure settings are saved. In my case, I had “All Media Types” and “All Ratings” selected in the toolbar. When I open Media Bay, I go to that specific folder with “All Media Types” selected, the listing and categories in the listing show up according to my save settings…
when I open media bay, switch to another folder and then back to my “Sample Library Folder”, my initial settings disappear. I have to re-arrange all my columns and re-select my categories to “Name - Rating - Tempo - Key - Image” aso. This is incredibly annoying.
You can recreate the issue as follows:
1.) Open Media Bay
2.) Choose “All Media Types” in top toolbar.
3.) In File Browser (Left) choose a specific folder with Audio.
4.) Set up your result columns (click on star icon at the top of listing far right)
(To make sure the issue is correctly re-created, choose the following categories and arrangement order: "Bitdepth - Name - Rating - Tempo - Key -
Size - Image - Channels - Duration - Character - Category - Sub Category - Style - Sub Style - Genre - Path - Date Created - Sample Rate - Notes -
5.) Close Media Bay
6.) Reopen Media Bay
7.) Choose “Sample Library Folder” (should be selected by default)
8.) Re-Navigate to the “Specific folder” selected under point 3 (again, this most likely will be selected by default)
9.) Now choose “VST Sound” folder
10.) Now go back to “Specific Folder” selected under point 3
11.) All columns are re-arranged again by Cubase and original user setting are lost.
PS: Before this issue appeared in Cubase 10, I frequently had to reset my columns in the search results after updates. It would be much easier if Steinberg just added a “Configuration” drop down (like everywhere else), in which various user columns can be stored and recalled manually whenever needed. I would also like to see a way to set up my columns “globally”. Which would then override any default settings within the different “Media Types”.
On a different note: It would be nice, if Steinberg could get rid of the pop-ups for the “Character” category (pop-ups should really only occur on double clicks).
PS: I really like Cubase 10 and think its a real improvement to 9.5. Working very well and performance definitely much better now!
