When working with video with Mix console on monitor 2, I'm still fighting with "always on top" even in 7.0.6. Click a plugin...video hides behind the mixer. Click on the mix console, video hides behind the mix console! Is there ANY way to have the mix console on monitor 2, on full screen where no matter what you click on (video, plugin) it is ALWAYS ON TOP of the mix console? For me, this is the only frustration I have with the new Cubase. Maybe I'm doing something wrong and if so, please show me to the light
I use monitor 2 EXCLUSIVELY for the mixer, and it's set to full screen. Monitor 1 is for the main track page and the various track editors (piano roll, score, variaudio etc.) Monitor 3 is for everything else (VST's/VSTi's, video etc.)
I don't have any problems with this approach. Considering the very low cost of monitors today, I think it's a solution everyone should consider.
