A insanely stupid feature I never use (not for lack of trying BTW), but which pops up all the time and ruins my workflow.

Don't just add a "hide" option, get rid of it all together, fire the "genius" who came up with this idea, and add one of the 100's of features people here actually requested and supported!

Totally agree. Al least make this a preference that can be disabled.

+1 get rid of the side-popups. They're stupid and very inefficient. At least the option to disable them.

Hello all,

This issue has been CLOSED internally, before you all try to virtually kill me, :? let me explain:

From Marketing, public and beta forum reports and also from other sources inside and outside of Steinberg we finally have the verdict, that the Window Zone Overlay controls in their current form have not been enjoyed by users. Why?

- They can be only found by accident
- They appear at situations where users do not expect them to appear (e.g. in an attempt to resize a window or using scrollbars)
- They are difficult to operate at screen edges, where a 2nd monitor follows and extend the desktop area
In general they have rather contributed to more confusion than serving the need make opening/closing Zones more obvious.

In this context the Window Zone Overlays controls have to be removed.
That is the conclusion, I just cannot tell you when this is going to happen but it will be rather sooner than later.

Best regards,
GN

Thanks for the communication Guillermo, it's appreciated!

As another user echoed in another post it's a shame you have to do this in your own time and that there's not much more interaction/communication from Steinberg on the whole.

With C9 being so close to release is it fair to assume we will have to pay in effect to have this 'feature' removed or is there likely to be a maintenance update for this one?... Apologies for the question but someone is gonna ask it ;)

I'll add my thanks for giving us this information. Great news!

They can't be removed soon enough for me, but at least there is light at the end of the tunnel!

Ouch... it took Steinberg 300+ days to come to that verdict. If quality assurance, product specialists or beta testers aren't able to tackle these features long before they hit the first release candidate, I suddenly understand the strange decisions regarding design and overall user experience in the past Cubase versions. Nobody complained about the menu on the Windows title bar yet :lol:

I find that title bar menu very convenient lol. Saves some more valuable space.

Disabling pop ups is one of the most desired functions of c9. Steinberg will implement this year long request, and everybody will be happy to purchase the new version. It will be totally worthed the pay. .... It is a crazy world. Steinberg adds a useless feature, refuses to remove it, and after one year of agony you have to pay upgrade price to get it removed, and then everybody praises Steinberg for the wonderful new version of Cubase, because that feature is removed. I don't know.... are we really that stupid?

sonic - we don't know yet, but I took Guillermo's comment about fixing it sooner rather than later to mean that it would be fixed in a C8.x update. We'll see, but I wouldn't rush to judgement.

I don't see it as a big deal if it only gets fixed in V9. Unless someone plans to remain on 8.5 for the rest of their lives, it's a non-issue.
