Thanks for checking…
No, you can’t recreate the behaviour, right inside C7.5.10
All Midi recording/editing done from scratch behaves ‘normally’ (albeit with the inherent ‘scaling’ of the block display). The project in question was started in (I think) C4; the blocks and display scaling stuff came at v6.x.x or so, along with removing the lower event name label area in all events/parts (mostly blank space). IIRC…!!
I just tried an export/import in C7.5.10 of that whole event and it made no difference; the file imported without the display scaling and if I split it, then the behaviour is as seen before in my attached file.
Thus I’m surmising that the display scaling of these blocks seems locked to the event (as generated from the version of Cubase it was first created). I would guess, as soon as I split and re-save, I will never see that ‘re-scaled’ display (left-hand side in my attached file) ever go back to the original ‘look’.
I’m sure SB are no longer concerned; they’ve been all round the houses with this before, and they believe they have their solution in place - as per user requests… Really though, I can quite understand, that there’s much more serious stuff for them to be looking at. Now that I’ve seen the light, as it were, would just like a quick way of turning it off… that’s all.
