Something has also changed with zooming. With 8.0.3 and earlier, I could easily zoom using command + scroll wheel (left for zoom in and right for zoom out) and the focused area would not change. I can still zoom with this command but it causes the entire timeline view to shift left or right as well as zooming, so when I zoom now it’s very chaotic and not very precise.
Basically, the timeline moves left to right as I zoom in and out. It’s difficult to use now.
I find when working in the montage that Wavelab seems to registe a mouse click even though I’m not clicking, this happens on a regular basis. Maybe this is why it’s scrolling and zooming at the same time.
This is definitely different behavior than 8.0.3 I’m using the same Apple Magic mouse I always use and did not experience thing behavior until 8.5 today.
I hope it turns out to be a setting to solve the problem because it’s now hard to do fast and precise editing in Wavelab.
***I have confirmed that if I do a quick zoom in using command + scroll wheel and then quickly move the cursor over window or tab, that tab becomes selected even though I clearly did not press the tab.
There is definitely some untended clicking happening for whatever reason. It’s almost like if you use the virtual scroll wheel of the mouse, the wheel is still spinning for extra time, and hovering over something in that extra time causes the mouse to click. I can recreate over windows/tabs and even plugin knobs.
Another way to explain is it’s like there are extra clicks left in the mouse cache and if you hover over something soon enough, it clicks it for you even if you didn’t press it.
I think this is causing erratic GUI things. I can no longer work quickly in Wavelab because zooming in and out with the scroll wheel causes simultaneous zooming and scrolling to the left and right.
