Yep, that's how they do it ...
( ... and thanks JM, the question was somewhat rhetorical )
... and yes, it's getting better ... as years go by ;-)

They are slow, with all the issues ... and new stuff, bringing new issues.
Some time ago, I campaigned for Steinberg to go Cubase only.
At least halt everything else, till the majority of fixes is done and all features work es expected.
Maybe I should bring that back ?!

And another half-done job, or one step forward and one step back. 8.5.1 now has the better hovering throughout (except panners), but the buttons are now unresponsive to clicking.

Well, you still need to perform mouse artistic, to compare cue send levels.
There is still only one value shown at a time !
Hovering is NOT eliminated, yet.

I had some mere hopes, after so many years without cue send levels,
they might bring them back ...
What I fool I am ...

I have to admit, that the switch bug does not affect me that much.
I seem to have pretty good control over my mouse movements, so most of the time, the switches work.
Still this is pretty annoying, as you get the feeling it works reliable and just then, it fails.
Very NOT "pro" !
Definitely needs a quick-fix !

"The Hovering Control design" has finally got a name :shock:

Get rid of it all together is my take on it. I just wanna swipe my eyes across the board to see all relevant info (like on a real console)

It was slowly getting better....................... Then they manage to introduce the "Intelligent Name Abbreviation"....... again. Slightly changing the GUI with every small update is soooo frustrating.

Why do they have to change/add all those small unimportant things when release smaller updates. I want those to be mainly fixes.

Yep, the abbreviations are a constant source of frustration, since years. They need to go ...
As it seems, the majority does not want them ... probably some VIPs do.
