As much as I love everything to do with Nuendo/Cubase, there are a few things in dire need of an update.
Window management is one of those.
Workspaces just don’t seem to work right, no matter what I try.
Takes this scenario:
I’ve created a composition template for 2 monitors that shows the project window on the left monitor (so far so good), and the vsti instrument rack, edit channel window, pool, arrange editor, marker list, condensed mix console and undo list on the right monitor.
Most of these are set to ‘on top’ mode OFF, as it seems that when windows are set to be ‘always on top’, they jump to the main monitor on workspace recall.
But for some reason this setup won’t recall correctly; the edit window doesn’t come up, and neither do the arrange and undo windows.
If I have a mixer with ‘on top’ enabled, it always seems to recall to the main window.
Is there any way to fix this, and when oh when will we see a more unified windowing system (have a look at the adobe cc suite if you need inspiration of how it could work), where windows can scale and adapt to other windows.
It is frustrating to create some form of order out of multiple windows, some of which are non-resizable or re-ordering-able , only to find that your carefully crafted workspace won’t recall correctly anyway.
Oh, and while we’re at it, can we get a better macro editor?
The macro editor in combination with the project logical editor is a hidden gem that can be great at automating certain tasks and organising/naming your session, but it’s woefully underdeveloped.
The macro editor is a bit of a pain to access, and it doesn’t surprise me that a lot of people haven’t even ventured close to it, due to its somewhat hidden nature and arcane setup functionality.
Rant off…love Nuendo, but some of this stuff needs work…
