    Seeing the same thing here. Lots of misses where windows are misplaced and/or mouse clicks/drags are misinterepreted.

    Re: GUI CONTROL ISSUES 2020.8

    It’s weird as for instance the main panel, which should open fullscreen, is placed 2 inches from the top of the screen. After clicking the Green + it snaps back. If I then recall my basic Edit Workspace, some of my floating panels are misaligned (timeline and source/record monitor overlap, mixer is too low and drops partially below the screen).  Recalling the workspace again fixes that sometimes, but sometimes it takes two subsequent recalls of the workspace to get everything where it should be.

    When working, after a while, for no apparent reason, the timeline shifts up an inch on the screen. Then after a while, clicking th V1 track button selects V2. Dragging an Effect from the Effects Palette onto V3 makes the effect be applied to V4. Trying to step into an effect then doesn’t work. Sometimes my AudioSuite panel will not respond properly, meaning that I need to click about half of an inch below a dropdown box to acces it. Similarly, trying to select a frequency on the EQ sliders sometimes simply won’t work unless I drag the EQ Tool out of its panel. When playing a sequence, sometimes the playhead freezes up and I can’t stop the timeline for 6 seconds or so, can’t speed up or reverse, if I click nothing happens for those 6 seconds. I kept switching settings and have restarted MC and then could work for a couple of hours over the past two days.  It’s so bad that I’m planning to move back to 20.6 soon.  J P.S. Mostly been working on an approved z840, 64GB RAM, M4000, three 1900x1200 monitors, DNxHD SQ sequence.

    Re: GUI CONTROL ISSUES 2020.8

    It definitely is not working correctly. Just for grins, I decided to make a new user profile, just in case it was somehow misreading the existing one. As soon as I created the new profile, the main panel floated itself down the primary monitory display. So I don't think it's a profile issue.

    Just tried the various modes, and at least on my system everything works.

    Also for grins, I made the panel full screen and then switched projects. The panel remains full screen. It appears to only float after you create a new profile and select the initial project.

    So is this a stable upgrade?  Reason I ask I will be setting up the new computer next week - would download 2020.8 - but not if it is buggy.  Will just go back to 2020.4 or 2020.5 - but rather not gum up a new machine dowloading applications and then uninstallng them - just to wind up having to download a previous version.

     

    Thank you

    Re: GUI CONTROL ISSUES 2020.8

    Ok thank you for the heads up - Might just stay on wither 2020.4  or go for 2020.6 - not sure yet.  Lately I feel we all are their BETA TESTERS - I think it is far better to put out versions that have all bugs fixed then new versions with new freatures that have prolemnatic bugs.  I am happy avid/mc is advancing but maybe too fast.

    Well thank you for taking the time in testing the software - my hat is off to you.  I have a few weeks before I have the new project in - so maybe I will see how 2020.8 performs.  I spoke to my IT guy and he said he will mirror the new OS - so if I want to go back to the fresh install I will be able to.  This is in the event I have to uninsstall 2020.8 and go back to a lower version. Also I see from your spec you are on MAC - maybe PC might handle things differently.     Thank you for keep me posted
