    MC 8.9.3 - Markers dialog comments not automatically selected

    My workflow invlolves adding markers with a keyboard shortcut and quickly typing comments in the pop up dialog.

    In MC 8.9.3, the comments field is not automatically selected after creating the marker, so I have to either manually select it with the mouse or toggle through multitle marker dialog elements before reaching the comments box.

    Is this a bug or a deliberate change in functionality? It is slowing me down considerably.

    Have you checked your Marker settings and made sure "Disable Marker pop up when adding" has not been checked. (right click in the Markers Window to access Marker settings)   Typing works with 8.9.2 on W7 after adding Marker from KB.   (Sorry tested with 8.9.2 first.)

    8.9.3 test 
    On W10 the Marker pop up window opens from KB add marker but typing does not work without mouse clicking in the popup window.   New project in 8.9.3 and existing Project checked.

    Yes, the pop up appears as I want it to, but I can't immediately type unless I click on the comments box. Before 8.9.3, the comments box would activate automatically and I could start typing without any extra clicking.

    That is what I found with 8.9.3 when I checked it on a W10 machine.

    Edit Add
    Updated a W7 Pro computer from 8.9.2 to 8.9.3.  This machine now has the same issue that I cannot now type in a Marker comment without first clicking in the Marker Dialog box.     (I could 10 minutes this before with 8.9.2 installed)

    This behaviour has been intermittent for me for several versions. The marker comment window sometimes has focus, other times not. I have not used 8.9.3 yet

    I just got a confirmation from Aleksandra at Avid Customer Care that engineering is aware of the bug and that it will be addressed in v8.10 coming within a month.

    Thanks for the update. This was making me batty. Especially since I'm heavily marking footage right now! Big Smile

    Also, have to click, can't just hit enter on keyboard. Really slows the process down.

    TIP IN THE MEANTIME: Hit TAB three times (I'm on a mac but it gets you there without having to move the mouse and click every time.

    after text entered, TAB TWICE to get to the "okay" button and hit enter to get out.

     

    Sorry for all the edits.

    Pretty annoying.

     

    But press TAB 3 times --> enter text --> press ALT+ENTER(NUM-Pad)
