In C5 and I believe prior versions, there was an option to make events transparent. This is a feature I use EXTENSIVELY for choosing drum parts (being able to see the accuracy of the hits against the grid). That feature has been completely removed.
Man, I gotta say… C6 is the most disruptive version change since the VST-to-SX change. Several things that are staples of my workflow have been changed, or in this case, removed entirely. The new features are nice, but the extra whimsical changes are hurting me, some in big ways. Steinberg, if you offer a feature in one version, DON’T BAG IT ENTIRELY IN THE NEXT REVISION. People learn to rely on certain features, and you hose them when you take them away.
If Steinberg can cite a valid reason why they removed this feature, I could find a way to accept it.
