Please show 'LOCK PUNCH POINTS TO LOCATORS' is active by changing the locators, instead of only disappearing PunchPoints

The gif says it all


Agreed. If Punch-In is activated, that should be reflected in the ruler also when the the punch-points are locked to the Locators.
Now when the punch points are locked, it looks the same as if Punch-In is deactivated, although it is active. Confusing.

Even if the separate punch-point-indicators are removed because they are locked to the locator positions, the red line should be shown in the ruler to show that Punch-In is active, and the Locators could turn red - as suggested - in replace for the removed separate punch indicators.

yes and further, it can adapt based on what parameters are active:

Loop and Punch In/Out locked to Locators

Locked to Locators active with only Punch In

you get the idea

anyone know if this was added in 11?

I have Cubase 11 but it is still as you show in your images.
When the lock icon is ON the red up/ down arrows disappears.

Personally I would draw it like this

Your example works within that specific example, but the only problem is that the Punch In/Out points are not always within the locators as shown in your second graphic (with Lock to Locators disabled), and thus, one would not be able to differentiate visually. ie If you remove the project locators from your second example, it looks exactly like your first example.

Yeah well like this would still be visible though

Also if they would extend the lines like they did for the markers so that they are visible in the grid (as a preference) it would still visible

I would have to still refer to my previous examples I think, imo, they are more clear and defined and allow for the combination of Loop Cycle. Also, prevention of Punch In/Out Locators, and Project Locators from being lost into each other.

This is a good idea

Well it was just a personal suggestion. In any case the problem is not the graphical representation is just the feature is not there at all.

Yes exactly, the way the graphical representation just disappears is a fairly big annoyance as the transport icons aren’t very noticeable.

I routinely accidentally punch-in record when I didn’t mean to because of this graphical miss-design. Or worse, accidentally punch-out when I intended to keep recording a certain length.

Stop being violent and punching stuff :smiley:

No unnecessary punching here, I have a rotti. :service_dog:
