In SFP 13 the selection in "General Preferences" for "Show a textured background" is available and I've checked the box yet the texture only appears for a moment upon opening then is covered by a flat background. Anyone else experiencing this?
I also have the same problem. I contacted Tech Support and they said it was a known bug and would be fixed in the next program update. It has NEVER been fixed. Now I am getting all kinds of Magix ads for Sound Forge 14 and other products. WHY would I buy anything else when they can't be bothered to fix known bugs.
You can stop the ads. Options> Preferences> General", un-check mark "Use Net Notify to stay informed about products and updates". There is a separate update notification app the can be uninstalled as well (off hand, I do not recall it's name) Doing both will eliminate most annoyances.
Yes, I too am shocked that they are pushing Sound Forge 14 on customers when SF 13 still has the simplest of bugs to patch. It speaks volumes on how Magix regards their customers, and I don't remember this being an issue under Sonic Foundry/Sony's reign. I don't know about you, but adding the textured background when you first boot up a new version of SF is pretty much a tradition for us legacy users, no?
So, I decided to upgrade to version 14 hoping that the background texture problem had been resolved. But, still no textured background. I know that this isn't a priority item, but I prefer to have the texture.
