I normally don’t complain, since I love Cubase and am very grateful to have it as a working environment for my life as a musician, so: Thank you!
However, the issue depicted in my screenshot is very distracting and “un-pro” looking and apparently results just from users adjusting their window border widths. I know of course that this adjustment IS a “registry hack”, but still…
It should be possible to remove the garbage window content displayed around the edges in Cubase.
Thank you for your kind consideration,
EDIT: I reset the border size to default, and all is well. My apologies for polluting the forum and taking up valuable resources. Seriously.
Hm… I wouldn’t be able move that thread. (it’s the subforum that’s locked, not the thread itself.) I hear what you’re saying, but registry hacks really can’t be accommodated. What a slippery slope that would be for developers! Why don’t you rename this topic to something more specific and continue here?
So here’s what happened: I adjusted the border size to 0 way back when building the machine, installed Cubase after that and Cubase behaved strangely ever since.
I just now experimented and changed it back to default…
And discovered that since I use Cubase (and most other programs) in fullscreen mode, there’s actually MORE space now and no window borders at all!
So: My bad for screwing around with that, and for the few times when there’s borders around my non-maximized windows, I’ll get used to those.
In Windows 8.1 you can’t change the border width, unfortunately, only by manually editing the registry…
But I’d rather get used to the wider border for the few non-fullscreen windows that I use, than have SB accommodate Win7 and aforementioned hacks, and then maybe break something else in the process…
And Win10 will be here in a few weeks and supposedly change everything anyway.
I read you, I was/am in that thread as well…
My gut feeling is, that SB will wait for this to blow over with more peeps migrating to Win 8.1 and 10.
I myself made peace with the wider borders as a workaround to make Cubase work properly.
Strictly personal, so to speak…
