Unofficial Mouse Click Reduction, Work Efficiency, and Smart Functions Thread - Simple Suggestions. Devs plz pay attent.

I feel like this is really really important for Cubase right now. Steinberg have added a plethora of new features that are welcomed and I’m sure they can continue to refine. But It is extremely important for us and Steinberg to start focusing on the small wrinkles in this program and iron them out.

Try to keep suggestions to simple things that sort of already exist and can just be tweaked - not full fledged new features of which I have many to suggest myself (Like a horizontal pop-up Clipping/Peak Histogram per channel that shows time based where peaks occurred and being able to click on them takes the locator to that spot… whops, snuck this suggestion in this thread :smiley: )

A simple suggestion as an example would be this:

Separate key commands for ‘Snap On’, and 'Snap Off’
Most of us would always hit only one or the other, to be sure that the one we want is activated instead of having to look and see which is activated. Secondly, these separate commands would function better in macro coding.
Separate Snap On/Off thread: https://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=285&t=147692

Keep your suggestions clear for the devs to see like the paragraph suggestion above, don’t put your suggestion in the middle of an essay Also, create a separate thread for your suggestion and link to it from here and keep the discussions about individual user suggestions in their own threads.

Thanks

While I am here, I will add my other ones.

Return of the colour tool
As hopefully probably already seen, many of us need the Colour Tool back. Summary, lack of ability to alt-modifier-sample existing colours in the project, colour titles not showing for quick selection of colour, lack of colour cue to be able to use last colour selected.

Pool: 'Move Selected to new Folder’
I often use ‘Find Selected in Pool’
Great, that works… Now I want to move these selected to a folder… click ‘New Folder’, and it deselects the selection. Now I have to go back to project window and do the same thing again.
