Great thread! Hopefully we’ll get some nice tips for aero, because aero sucks big time. I turned off transparency for aero which improved the ability to view cubase menus. But still the border of the plugin windows are unecessary thick, it’s really ugly.
Sadly, I feel the aero glowing fonts make Cubase Pro 8 look cheap. Shot in foot moment there! Seriously, a friend came over to look at it in use and literally spluttered ‘Toy Town’ at me when he saw the ridiculous glowing fonts!
You’re right. The registry key
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\DWM\TextGlowMode would help you, but it’s not available in Windows < 8. Those with Win >=8 can try it (Reg_DWord with value 0 and a restart of the DWM should turn text glow off).
Glad to find this thread! I am very happy with the overall improvement in performance (surprisingly noticeable on my system!) and I LOVE the plug-in manager, but I HATE HATE HATE the aero implementation. It is completely counter to the way I work and I wrestle with it terribly. Did I mention I hate the aero?
