Re: Make Edge Zone optional

Post by kyleknapp »

It's a TERRIBLE feature. NOBODY likes it. Hundreds of comments on this forum attest to the fact that it is hampers our workflow and offers nothing of value in return. I've seen NOT ONE comment from anyone who actually uses it or thinks it's a good idea.

Is there any indication that anyone from Steinberg has even noticed our complaints about this? I may have missed it, but I haven't seen any. I saw an "open letter" from Steinberg assuring us of their commitment to "Tending to customer feedback" and "ensuring usability", but no mention of this issue.

Steinberg, are you listening?

Five pages of commentary in this thread alone (not a single one favorable) indicates this is a serious problem. And yet I've seen no acknowledgement from the Overlords that they've even noticed. (Of course I haven't read EVERY page on this forum, maybe I overlooked it).

This is now a deal breaker for me. I WILL NOT buy another Cubase upgrade if it doesn't fix this problem.

same here. i'm on the edge of swapping over to Studio One. they seem way more responsive and implement all the strangely obvious, common sense features that i am missing in Cubase. the only thing holding me back is the prospect of a learning curve, but even that looks less daunting the more i engage with Studio One. and i am saying this after working with Cubase since its inception in the 80's!!

Yes, please remove. An absolute workflow killer.
Hover pop-ups are generally terrible for GUI's anyway..it either means you have to wait, or it pops up when you don't want to.
Also, was this functionality not already incorporated in the Window layout button?

Agreed, just put the buttons up there next to the other tools, no need for an extra click to access a blured menuscreen for these few buttons. And I dont even use chords or racks at all, so these popups are extremly annoying. Everything else, KC!

Absolute truth. Happens to me easily 100 times in a long session. Makes me very angry...yes, insane! I swear, rant, even throw things.

If you were trying to design the most annoying feature to add to a DAW, this would be it. Maybe it was planned this way to force an upgrade to Cubase 9 just to get out of this hell.

I'm glad i'm not the only one who feels driven to this..... if the person who came up with this 'feature' were in the same room as me yesterday when i had a similar experience, then seriously i would have torn them a 'new one' and rammed something incredibly large, abrasive and with many sharp corners up said new one..... a large pineapple springs to mind! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

PLEASE can we at least have some kind of hotfix to at least disable this?

After *months* of giving this feature a fair trial, unintentional/unwanted pop ups still out-number useful/desired pop ups about 100 to 1. OPTION TO DISABLE PLEASE!!!

Steinberg people: P.L.E.A.S.E. give us the option to disable this feature. It is annoying beyond words. Like so many others have stated in this thread, it messes up the workflow to such an extent.
It might seem like a trivial thing, but I can assure you, it is downright infuriating. Imagine me relentlessly popping my head in front of yours, blocking your line of sight, every time you move your hand towards "Enter" or "Space", while working on programming the next installment of Cubase.

You don't know it yet, but in Cubase 9 a basic sampler will pop out of the edge when you hover there.

I say don't give us an option, but simply cast it into the pit of 'why did we ever think that was a good idea?'. An option switch only makes sense if some will use the feature and others won't. This thread suggests that nobody will switch it on.

I agree. Why even bother coding a Preference option to shut off a bad idea in the first place? Into the Cornfield™ with it, I say.

Oh.....so this is the Cornfield?....

First I thought that this is a graphics bug or something. This is some really annoying nonsense. At least there should be an option to switch this crap off!
