    8.9.3 You guys mucked up Markers AGAIN! and I say "GRRR!"

    Me?  I'm the guy who's been harping for years to stop neglecting the markers tool, and now, today, after going up to 8.9.3, you've made it even worse.

     

    Now, when you add a marker and a window pops up, the cursor no longer defaults to the text entry field (requiring a click), and THEN! when you're done typing, someone has broken the <numeric "enter"> functionality which USED to not do a carriage return but close the window -- now, you have to click (or tab to the "Close" so that you can click -- which doesn't highlight BTW).

     

    To that I say GRRRRRR!!!!!  Please fix it!@

    This is a known bug that is fixed and will be available when 8.9.4 is released. See this thread

    Sorry I do not know if this is also part of the same fix.

    Ah!  Thanks, Andrew!  And my bad for not finding the bug list thread!

    Sadly, the first salvo against the practicality of using Markers was when Avid, for reasons yet unexplained, broke the text wrap function. Now, PDFs or printouts are limited to very short sentences.

    Please Avid, bring back Markers text wrap... scripted and unscripted series, MOWs, and features live by Markers and most of us who specialize in these shows can't understand why such a simple bug has gone unrepaired for more than a decade.
