Anyone know how I can keep the arrangement window full-size and always in the background in Cubase VST5.1? It used to stay put, but now whenever I open something else, it reduces itself into the corner... Pulling the whole thing across the screen helps, but is obviously not the same as having it "maximized".. I'm sure it's something totally basic-any ideas?
EDIT: it seems there is a way to set the arrangement to be "always on top" but I can't find where you do this?
BUT I STILL cannot figure out exactly what they mean, where/what to do!!! right clicking in the mixer window doesn't do anything. am I just being dumb? maybe comeone else can interpret this better? Is this only possible in SX?
(this is like that episode of the simpsons where homer has invented an amazing device in a dream, but can't see what it is becuase everyone else is gathered around it!)
well.. in Studio 4 - that makes the plugin GUIs stay always in the foreground.. i don't think that's what we're trying to achieve - right? i just want the arrange window to stay maximized even if there are unmaximized windows in front of it.. that's what i imagine.. i kind of think it can't be done in my version though now..
ya - 'always on top' seems to be the option for Cubase 4 anyway.. here's what i got from user Hackenslash at Cubase.net:
"Every time a window pops up and reduces the arrange window, right-click on that window (in a blank area) and click on "always on top". This is close to, but not the same as, the always on top option in your preferences. If a window is set to "always on top", it will have no effect on your project window when you open it.
This works in Cubase SX 2.2 but there is no check box in the Preferences for VST set to Always on Top... you have to manual click always on top everytime you open a new synth or effect plug-in. It's a little tedious but deffinately preferable to moving windows. I never understand why Cubase doesn't have a locked mixer like in Pro-Tools or Ableton it's a simple thing that I think really helps your workflow...
