Shortcut key to start export audio

Postby Doctor Lupo » Sat Jan 26, 2013 3:05 pm

Hello all - not sure this has been already discussed, but I really wish the Export Audio Mixdown window would allow starting the file export by simply pressing Return or Enter (as it used to be in older versions). Am I missing something?

Thanks!

Yes, this has been discussed to death.

Search for 'Accelerator' or 'Default Button' for a fuller explanation. All windows should have these as basic usability. They seem to come and go for various functions with each rev.

I think with C6 the export window was made independent (you can do other things while it's open). That was the moment when the automatic focus on the export button was lost. It's not so convinient sometimes, but well, sometimes it is...

I agree - it is convenient for the export window to be independent. I would be happy if I could simply assign a shortcut key to the export function. As far as I can tell this is not currently possible. I do a lot of exports of individual tracks for mixing engineers and would find this useful. Of course it's not a deal-breaking issue. I'm very happy with C7 till now.

you can set a key command, i have.

cant remember the EXACT location, but search for 'export' in the key command menu and it will pop up.

i have mine set to ' ` ' (left of 1/! key)


works well for me....

hope this helps.

P.S. this example is Cubase 5, but i'm sure it will translate to Cubase 6/6.5/7

Thanks Majic, but that only opens the whole window. Anyway, not a huge problem, as I said. I just have to lose my old Cubase habit of pressing Return and start using the mouse instead.

I have a keyco for opening the export window since ever. Even thought it was standard. The extra stroke seems unavoidable but how else should it work. Cubase cannot guess the name you have in mind for the exported file.

Yes, we know that. This is about starting the export with a key command, not opening the window.
