Make sure the Status Line is off (but Info Line is on).
Select any notehead (only one, which we will call “note A”)
Hit TAB three times.
Hit the RIGHT arrow key two times (keys on your computer keyboard).
Make any adjustment you want using the UP and DOWN arrow keys (keys on your computer keyboard) then hit ENTER (Return).
Without deselecting the first notehead (i.e. without clicking in white space), select another one (“note B”), and press again TAB, but this time only two times.
→ Issue: “note B” moves exactly where “note A” was, and becomes the same size.
A temporary solution would be to click in white space before selecting another notehead, but clicking usually involves a mouse, unfortunately. In fact, the whole idea of using TAB to make minor adjustments is to not use a mouse.
(verified in both Cubase 10.5.20 Pro, and Cubase 11 Pro)
This is a nasty problem for me, because I’m constantly changing note length and position by using the tab and arrows keys. Please fix this issue, it’s been outstanding for a while now… since Cubase 10.5.
Is it a work around? When do you hit the escape key?
In terms of work arounds, I believe that arrowing back and forth once another note is selected commits the changes also, and prevents the second note from shifting.
I wonder why the “computer keyboard input” icon turns red (and goes “suspended”). Seems like that is part of the issue.
