Return to last window

Post by MattiasNYC »

I typically have at least two windows open - the project window, and the video window. Here's what happens:

1. I'm in the project window (focused) with video on my second monitor.
2. I open Control Room to change something.
3. I close CR.
4. I am now in the video window.

The behavior drives me absolutely insane. Whatever I do, open the pool, CR, Media Bay, a mixer - it always returns to the video window rather than where I were. It really affects my workflow.

REQUEST: Return to the previous window, i.e. project window (in this case).

AND: Overhaul window management in its entirety.

At the very least provide a key command option for bringing any window into focus (NOT toggle). At least that way we could create macros that would always work regardless what window one starts in.

Though, this is about the whole of the window handling functions; I wouldn't complain if they really looked at all of it again... Cubase and Nuendo.

I, too, fully support this!
At least, give us a choice to work with one or the other .

I agree with you. Rather than start a new topic what you just wrote is exactly what I hope for. I edited the post to make that clearer. Thanks!

Fully agree with this, also not being able to have a solid background anymore drives me nuts! I don't want to see my desktop in the background - it's easy enough to open other windows when needed!

Join. It really is a problem Nuendo-7. Also give you an example: after the window is closed, for example - Detect silence, immediately stop working, keyboard commands in Project window, even zoom in/out/, but the keys Start/stop functioning. In Nuendo of 6.5 - this is not a problem.
I urge the developers to release a new version at least without deterioration of previous functional and ergonomic features of the program (for example, when, after Nuendo 4,3 removed the UNDO function while recording that still delivers a lot of inconvenience in a live work when the task is to edit previously recorded material) And again, right above noticed - Nuendo - program to post-production, and all the presets, mostly musical - from Cubase. Very good developers - two birds with one stone shoot! And I wrote earlier that the developers, in all likelihood, just get the desktop version Nuendo for Nuage console. Here are the roots of all problems of program updates - the design, ergonomics, stupid colors for Pre/Post faders sends in Cue, tiny popochki the zoom bar - probably for snipers :-) and many more. Kept silent about the "single button Close window" when the edit window in full screen mode; or barely visible display during drag an event... The one who came up with this design - you need to give out the award! Smacks of diversion in relation to users :-) Hope Nuendo 8 is human! ... or not?... :-)
And - Sorry for my English :-)
