Hi and Hello again,
I still want to remember and criticize Cakewalks low level 'Keyboard Binding' solution.
Had found an article: "30 days with Cakewalk - Part 1: AlmostEverything
There you will find a detailed explanation about what is going wrong...
to read there...
-TERRIBLE default bindings - The default bindings are some sort of next level trash. A number of useful functions are unbound, and useful functions (like tools) are bound to overlapping keys.
-Multiple Layers - You cant search just everything. You need to know if your binding is global, console, event list, step sequencer, etc… etc… You’re left to browsing 18 sub-layers of shortcuts by hand.
-Slow - the keyboard shortcuts window is slow to load, slow to bind/unbind and slow to switch “areas”.
-Corruption - I’ve had my shortcuts corrupted once, that’s more times than I ever want it to happen. I’ve never had this happen in any other software. I’ve lost bindings due to my own idiocy, but never had bindings corrupted on save.
The Keyboard Shortcuts window is a necessary feature that’s only half-done."
For me, taking lanes or workspace-philosophy isn't that much the hype, I rather prefer optimation on things I really need. Thx for reading 🙂
With nice regards
