the Space bar & numberpad work no matter which window is in focus. It IS possible.
Hey Steve, I re-read this… What is ‘FR’ and where do I “Make Key Commands contextual to the window being worked in”?
FR= Feature Request
I just made one in the Feature Request Forum.
The command is “Bring to Front” in the Project section of the Key Commands dialog. It works here. Are you sure this was not operator error?
Didn’t even think about using FR… thanks
I tried several times, and I’ve had a lot of experience with writing Macros, so I think the Operator tested it well
Since I couldn’t get “Bring to Front” to function, I’m at a loss… at the moment…
btw, I have to commend you for making the effort to resolve this. Of all the posts I’ve had on the subject, yours is the first to offer a solution. ( not to be confused with suggestions : )
sounds like a great fix!
If you are on Windows there are the weird Windows windows rules regarding Cubase being spread over two screens. Do you have the mixer set to full screen, if so did you try it the other way 'round? (Now would be a good time to go to the User Control Panel and add your system info to your sig. It’s brain-numbing to ask the same exact questions over and over.)
Anyway, if people show a consistent interest in the specific FR of having context sensitive key commands It might get some traction. It’s here: http://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=182&t=47739.
It is also possible that the decision has been made already, they are revamping the project window for a future update.
Maybe this will explain what i think I’m after…
How to operate key commands in the Project Window, Screen 1,
while focused on the Mixer Window, Screen 2,
and without touching Screen 1 first.
it’s used for the purpose of being able to perform certain operations, by keystroke, and be able to view the results on the project screen ( s 1 ), while working on the mixer screen ( s 2 ) … just like with the Spacebar & NumberPads.
I’m not sure if what you said is the same thing?
Please reply to the thread you quote from.
Actually, I’ve been posting this in Feature Requests since 7.0 … no results except for this latest lame fix which leaves no zoom control on the Mixer Window unless you activate “Use Standard Zoom Commands” and then go back and deactivate it.
It STILL doesn’t resolve the problem.
I think you might have missed the point of the OP, which is:
In the Key Commands dialog in the Mixer section there are now zoom commands exclusively for the mixer.
I’m not sure what ‘OP’ is but I found the Zoom commands you’re referring to.
Personally, I would have put them in the ‘Zoom’ folder and called them ‘Zoom mixer in’ and ‘Zoom mixer out’.
OP=Original Post. It’s forum-speak.
