Transport Panel template Cubase 12.0.50


I’m running Cubase 12.0.52 (Rosetta 2) on a MacBook M1 Pro 12.6.1 Monterey, and I’ve created a template for the docked Transport Panel I’ve used for many years prior. Unfortunately Cubase resets this template each time I start a new project and I have to load the template again. I never had this issue on my last intel Mac. Is there a way to force my Transport Panel as the default? Even when I load a project template I’ve created, it still resets the transport panel dock.

Thank you
