(Solved) Using Project Assistant, "New Folder" Button Missing from Dialog

When creating a new project in previous versions of Cubase (with the “Prompt for Project Location” option chosen) I used to double click my template and a dialog box option would pop up with a button labeled “New Folder”. I would click that button, type in my project name, hit OK, and a new sub-folder would be created in my main Cubase projects folder. That new folder is where my new project would be saved to.

In CB 10 Pro I don’t get that button labeled “New Folder”. This means I would have to create that project sub-folder first outside of Cubase (probably using File Explorer") before creating a new project.

Anyone have a similar concern/issue and, more importantly, can this be fixed?

Edit… The solution was that I mistakenly did not notice the “New Folder” button. It is there in CB 10, just located to a different location on the dialog box.

Edit… sorry I can delete the duplicate screenshots.

Can you right click in the explorer window to create new folder?

Yes… that is helpful, so thank you. :wink:
But, doing it this way creates a few extra steps after I create the new folder. I then must choose that new folder and select it as the new folder. Where previously, I would hit the “New Folder” button, type it in, and hit OK.

I mean, I can live with the new method but, the old method was more intuitive and slightly easier.

Sad if it is a change because the previous easier method and dialog box was used in Cubase for as long as I remember.

So, is this a change for everyone using CB 10 or something weird on my system?

Just looking for feedback from a few fellow CB 10 users to tell me if, on their system, they see a “New Folder” button when creating a new project or not (see the pics in my OP). Thanks. :wink:

I noticed this too on Win7 and Win10.

Thanks for the feedback Tracker. :wink:

Maybe I’m not understanding the question? I see the New Folder button in each of your uploaded pics.

The screenshots I uploaded shows the “Set Project Folder” dialog box that pops up right after I hit the project “Create” button in both CB Pro 9.5 & 10. I did mistakenly uploaded double screenshots (which I can’t delete) but the one named “Set Project Folder in CB 9.5 Pro” shows the “New Folder” button. The screenshot named " Set Project Folder in CB 10 Pro" does not have a “New Folder” button.

So I am wondering if that it is how it is supposed to be in CB 10 or if it is only in my system? Or is it a bug?

If it is only in my system maybe someone will have a suggestion for how to fix it (before I request SB support).

Hm… hiding in plain sight?

Steve… you da man! Thanks so much. :blush: I just tried it and that button works perfectly.

I’m glad it was my oversite and not a CB issue.

Man… I’m getting too old for this s… (stuff).

None of us are getting younger! :astonished:
