I’m using Cubase Elements now and have already ordered the upgrade to Cubase Artist. Now, Cubase is letting me down!
First: I’m using a Macbook Pro with OSX Lion.
When opening Cubase the project assistant opens: when selecting any option with the mouse, the project assistant does not respond anymore. If I do not use the mouse but select the options with keyboard (tab-ing and enter to select option) it works fine.
When opening a project, again, the application works fine when pressing keyboard keys but when clicking an option with the mouse it hangs again. It seems like the mouse is pressed but it does not come back to state ‘unpressed’.
I’ve tried using different mouses as well as the Macbook’s trackpad but so far no results.
When it occurs I must force the application to shutdown (there is no ‘Not Responding’, however).
Ah, I think this happened to me a few times (on a macbook pro as well), and I’ve found a possible “solution”. What seems to happen is Cubase is selected, but thinks that you’re outside of Cubase, for example, in another application or on the desktop. Thus, any mouse clicks on the project manager doesn’t read the clicks. I believe that I resolved this by clicking on the desktop or another application, and returning to Cubase.
Then again, I don’t think this is the precise source of the problem, because I haven’t been able to reproduce it.
