FWIW... one reason most programs don't have such a feature is that this violates one of the basic tenets of O/S design: STANDARDISATION. O/S designers spend -thousands- of hours with big-brained researchers figuring out how to make the most usable interface and then offer -standard- widgets (like scrollbars) so that -all- programs will work THE SAME WAY.
All -I- have -ever- wanted is for Cubase (on Windows) to function according to... wait for it... the Microsoft UI developers guide, going back to 1995.
I would estimate that about 1/3 of my beefs with Cubase have NEVER been about 'reliability' or 'performance' or 'features' or all the other things people usually grouse about. MOST of my b-i-tches are that Dave Nicholson or Yvan or -whoever- seem to have this insane, almost PATHOLOGICAL NEED to re-invent the visual wheel... to make UI widgets work in novel ways, rather than just using the gizmos that Microsoft already thoughtfully provides and which already work very nicely. All the hidden this and disappearing that are -Steinberg- attempts to re-imagine things that do not need reimagining!
(Speaking of imagination: imagine all the new features and extra reliability that Cubase -might- have if all the kilocalories expended on needless UI junk were instead diverted towards the stuff people actually -clamour- for!)
Anyhoo... I wouldn't want your suggestion, simply because it's yet another violation of standardisation. But if you were cool with the good ol' fashioned Windows scrollbars? We're on the same page.
I don't really understand all the points of view - but mine is simple, I have poor vision and I'd like to be able to see the scroll bars again. Why isn't there an option to modify scrollbar width and colour?
