Please bring back the colour change that used to be such an easy win, in quickly (as in instantly) spotting reversed locators. You immediately saw when you’d got these swapped.
Yes, there are options in the Ruler Colour preferences to color the ‘reverse cycle range’ (amongst others), as you desire - but an option needs adding here, for a simple ‘Reversed Locator range’ choice.
Thanks for listening,
PS:- Thinking of newer Cubase users, a confusion/frustration point is also created, thus:-
- at export audio mixdown, they are presented with a pop-up telling them the Locators are empty…!
- now, they start looking, and see these are perfectly wrapped around the area they want to mixdown; nothing ‘empty’ about them…
So, what is going on…? what can that pop-up message mean…? I’ve done this loads of times before…! What’s happening…?! Steinberg…!? What have you done this time…!?! Hunting, looking, scratching head, looking in Help-file maybe, post a note on the forum maybe… and on and on it goes…
And all that’s actually happened is that their Locators are reversed; the old visual clue/cue (from SX3 days, up to v6.0…?) would avoid all this.
OR… how about changing the wording of that pop-up; the Locators aren’t ‘empty’; they are Reversed…!
