Tool Keys (1,2,3,4,5,etc) new shortcuts workaround Win10

For those, who wants them back to an earlier cubase versions state.
Ok! Good News! I’ve found a solution to customize those keys. 1. Go to C:\Users\YOURNAME\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\Cubase 10_64 (Yourname means your user account name) 2. find Key Commands.xml and make a backup of it with a different name/different location just for a safety reason. 3. Right-click Key Commands.xml / Open with Notepad. 4. Locate the next strings -

(here I changed value=“3” to value=“5”)



(here I changed value=“4” to value=“6”)



(here I changed value=“5” to value=“3”)



(here I changed value=“6” to value=“4”)

Save. Restart Cubase. Done! ) Well, Ok, as You probably guessed, value=“Tool 3” etc means tool in a numeric order on an upper panel of a main window.
And value=“5” etc means a shortcut KEY assigned to it. Yeah yeah - You’re welcome )))

How is this different that just editing the key bindings the regular way via Edit -> Key Commands? I reassigned all my key bindings for the tools that way.

Indeed. And if you always want the glue tool on the same key, assign a key to the glue tool, instead of tool #, as has been the method since the Pleistocene era. :wink:

Also, the edits made will be lost in the future.

Hmm… Was it all te time there? like in 6,7,8,9 versions? shame on me LOL
