Cubase 9 (Mac) – Tabbed UI Tip [Updated}
Note: It appears that as of 9.0.20 this trick no longer works.
I was recently updating my Cubase 9 workspaces and accidentally opened the Project window and MixConsole in tabs, see example screenshot below.
After trying out a few key combinations, I discovered that holding down Alt while opening the MixConsole(s) – and other devices such as the Pool – via the main menu consolidates the project window and opens a new tab.
You can cycle through tabs using cmd + shift + [ or ]
Additionally a new option ‘Close Tab’ appears in the File menu.
I gather this a new feature in MacOS Sierra, I don’t know if there is a comparable behaviour in Windows yet, so if anyone can test that, let me know your results.
It may be a very useful feature for those on single screens and laptops.
