Problem: Every time you open the Midi Key editor in Cubase 11 you find that your grid is now in minutes and seconds instead of bars and beats. This makes it difficult to move chunks of midi around.
Solution:You can set the default rule display to bars and beats — or whatever measure of time you prefer — by going to the Project menu, and selecting Project Setup.
I was having this problem myself, and so I started poking around on the internet, looking for a solution. Here’s what I found.
Under the heading of Project Time Display, there is a drop down menu called Display Format. Choose Bars+Beats, and you are done! Next time you open up the key editor, the timeline / ruler display will remain in bars and beats.
