This is one of the most time-based workflow-destroying issues for me with Cubase (along with the super long save times with big scoring projects): When you move a track/instrument/group/etc. up and down in the project window and you have, say, hundreds of tracks (extremely common with scoring), it takes an incredibly long time to move it a long distance up or down. In PT, Reaper, and Studio One (if I remember correctly) I noticed that this design flaw does not exist – in these DAWs when you drag a track up or down you go into super-fast dragging mode when you move past or close to the edges of the window. Cubase’s fastest enabling-scrolling-by-dragging speed is still slow.
This issue also exists when you’re moving an object/data left or right in the project window – if you need to move it a very far distance you have to wait unnecessarily while you drag because Cubase doesn’t go into super fast scroll mode at the edges like these other DAWs smartly do. Sometimes dragging something in this case is preferable to copy and pasting.
For those of you who have larger projects with tons of tracks, what are your workarounds for this issue?
