On which page in the manual(s) is 'Safe Start Mode'?

Aloha guys,

In another thread I was trying to help a user who was having some probs
by suggesting using the ‘Safe Start Mode’ function.

Now I have known about SSM and how to access it since C7.0 but I wanted to
point out the specific page in the manual so the user could read for themselves.

(you know; the teach a man to fish thang).

I cannot find ‘SSM’ in any of my built-in manuals. (and I really scoured them. or so I thought).

I checked:
1-Operations Manual
2-Quick Start Guide
3-Plug in Reference (figuring that there will be a troubleshooting section)
4-New features in Cubase 7.5
And nada.

How am I missing this?

Any help on this would be great (so that going forward I might be able to help others).

TIA (thanks in advance)

I think this was thrown in at the last minute , as a last remediation solution kinda thing (easier way to the standard answer of thrashing the prefs). But you never know with Steinberg :confused:

Anyway, I don’t think this is documented anywhere in the manual.

It’s in the knowledgebase and the C7 product web page… https://www.steinberg.net/nc/en/support/knowledgebase_new/show_details/kb_show/safe-start-mode-resetting-the-cubase-preferences.html


but that’s none of my business…

Aloha and thanks Steve.

Your first link was the one I posted to try and help the user but
one would think that a function so ‘fundamental’ and basic
to troubleshooting, would be sticking out of the manual like a sore thumb.

but what iBM posted sounds about right:

this was thrown in at the last minute

Perhaps the next manual.

Seems a pity to have a topic about Safe Start, without cutting to the chase and actually saying, here, that, it is done by holding down Shift+Alt+Ctrl (Shift+Alt+Cmd on Mac) while the Startup splashscreen is appearing :wink:.

What? Actual information! :open_mouth:

(but I could have been lying :stuck_out_tongue: )
