"Resizable" is clearly misunderstood at Steinberg

Post by mykejb »

I sometimes wonder if people who design interfaces actually use them. GA5 apparently has (insert impressive fanfare here) "Resizable Windows" !!!

Yep ... the windows resize, but the contents don't. Looking at the editor for the "Modern Cuban 01" groove
How not to do resizing
(96.6 KiB) Not downloaded yet
There's twice as much blank space in the window as information, yet the content hasn't resized so the full name of the instrument substyle is readable. Kinda makes you wonder whether this was picked up and looked at in the beta program or not, and if it was picked up then I guess the project leads decided it wasn't important. If one of my programmers produced something like that they'd be told to fix it. Having said that, lazy UI programming like this seems to be common at the moment (helloooo Native Instruments, looking at you here!!)

DAW is i7, 32Gb memory, mainly SSD and NVidia 980 graphics. Cubase 9.5/10, Studio One 4, Ableton 10, plugin collections from NI, Waves, Softube, Eventide, Soundtoys, UAD + other random ones. UAD Apollo, MR816 and Presonus interfaces. Too many control surfaces. Yamaha monitors/AKG headphones.

Yes - a 'resizable window' only; hmm... I'm missing the point here - what does it actually help with..?

So, in other words no fully scaleable UI support. I guess this has to be because the rest of the application, isn't really ready for that (Vector Graphics) yet. ! Maybe it improves with Cubase 10..? :)

System 1:- Win10 64bit, Gigabyte H81M m/board, Intel i7 4790 3.6Ghz, 16Gb RAM, NVIDIA GTX 750 Ti, 2 x 22" HD monitors; Steinberg UR44; Cubase Pro v10.5.20, WaveLab Pro v10.0.40, Studio One v4.6.1, Dorico Elements v3.5.10, Addictive Drums 2, Komplete 12, StylusRMX

System 2:- Win10 32bit, Q6600 2.4 Ghz, 4Gb RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS, Delta 1010LT; Cubase Pro v8.0.40, WaveLab Pro v9.1.0, Komplete10, StylusRMX
