Thank you for mentioning the horizontal zoom. I first noticed that vertical height was affecting whether or not dB markings were visible. So the horizontal zoom must have been set as needed.
But the psycho behavior of the cursor assuming the role of resize cursor is another issue. Any thoughts on that one?
Ok, it seems that this behavior does not occur when selecting MixConsole 2 or 3, just the first menu MixConsole item.
So looks like choosing MixConsole 2 or 3 is a reasonable work around for now.
Side Note: I’m among those who love the look of the MixConsole. The new default colors of Cubase are what I’ve been trying to achieve for a long time. C7 is the first upgrade where I have not bothered to make any adjustment to the overall appearance except for darkening the editor window backgrounds.
