So, it's awesome that we users are given a forum to offer suggestions. But: How many people suggest the same thing and don't even know it? Wouldn't it be great to not re-submit someone else's idea because we'd see that person already did that? Wouldn't it be great if we could have a way to second someone else's suggestion to build more support for it...and we could see that in one location? Wouldn't it be more fulfilling for the ones offering a suggestion to see whether the idea is being pursued and a penciled-in timeframe when the feature might be released? Most importantly, it would be great to have a resource that says, 'Actually, dude, that feature is already IN the DAW and here is where to find it.'
So say my project is at measure 40, and that measure and what is after it appears onscreen in the track view. Meanwhile, off screen is measure 30, due to how zoomed in I am. Now say I click a marker that is at measure 30. The Now time does show 30, but the onscreen view of the Track View does not refresh to go to measure 30. I don't know if this is truly an issue with this release or it has always been this way, but the bottom line is it would be nice if the GUI would move to the new location. Instead, what is happening is the app is correctly going to measure 30, but the user has to scroll over to measure 30 to see where the marker now resides. This essens the effectiveness of having the Markers feature. In other words, it is not intuitive nor user-friendly.
Way back before Bandlab acquired Cakewalk, there was company-created hoopla about the Skylight interface that allowed users to customize what they saw where. However, one aspect of this customization remains a glaring omission: Allowing users to determine custom font sizes of certain tools w/o impacting the whole display. Currently, Cakewalk offers only a Big Time option, but doesn't do this for other frequently-used viewed items like Clip Properties to see a clip's start time. Nor does it do this for user-input values in pop-up menus like Transpose. What about giving us the option to temporarily hide part of an on-screen menu like Clip Properties by pushing up on it to show what is currently partially obscured? (the Console faders for the current track and the Master? So, how about offering true customization of font size for anything that can be seen onscreen?
