Hi Martin –
So here’s the update. “Trashing” the preferences folder (renaming it, and allowing Cubase 9 to create a new one) works! I open a new project, and the cursor behaves correctly!
But here’s the rub… it only works if I open a NEW project. If I open any of my ongoing client projects (originally created in 7.5), the problem returns… not just in those projects, but now if I open a new one as well.
Does this give you any ideas?
