    Customize MARKERS Window

    Hi dear people,

     

    I miss the headings in the markers window and also the possibility to change the order of the columns.

    Reason: I basically need only the comments and the TC, and as the comments are the 6th column, I waste a lot of space when using the markers window.

     

    Thanks, Bilbo

    about locator window, it would be great that we can save our preference as a setting : each time I start the application, I have to set again "show images" and "disable opo up window when adding". This is the way I like to use markers and it would be great to save that, as we can save everythibg else.

    Just wasted 20 minutes realising that locators are now called 'markers' in v7 - when did that happen? Gosh, lots of FCP terminology now, but I hope they're not a clunky as FCP markers - I was aching for 'locators' on a recent FCP job!

    Re: Customize MARKERS Window

    Only beeing able to change the width of a column with enlarge or reduce is really absurd.


    - We need to be abble to change the order of the columns, choose which headings are visible and of course freely change the width of a column.

    - It would be nice to press returm to exit the window and SHIFT-return to pass one line

    - It would be nice when you are on a locator in the timeline that the locator in the locator window also becomes selected, in order to know where it stands in relation ship to the other locators.

    Beside this there are some mistakes:

    - when you have 2 locators, one on V1 and one and A1, if only A1 is seected, pressing delete should delete the locator on V1 instead of A1, but id actually deletes the locator on V1... So you can only delete the locator in the locator window itself.

    - the locators window update when you change something is not correct, you will see twice the same locator and have to double click on one so that the window representation on screen is correct.

    - locator sounds prettier as marker Smile

    I don't understand why the locators window is so primitive... Sad

     

    By the way, can someone give me the link where to post BUGS?

     

    THANKS!

    This is one of the things that I cannot believe hasn't been added. The ability to costumize your settings have always been the reason I fell in love with Avid in the first place and this really shouldn't be something that we have to wait too long for. 

    And change it back to Locators. I loved that terminology. Markers just gets lost in the mist of tools.

    +101. The Markers window should be as customisable as a bin in text view. I just realised how awful it is on a recent edit where I was lacking in monitor space.

    Re: Customize MARKERS Window

    second this! But I did just learn that you can use the keyboard to change the size of marker columns, including making the comments column as long as you want! On a mac it's option/K option/L. Or is is command? One or the other...

    Re: Customize MARKERS Window

    Command+ L or K but it doesn't stick. And I want to move the columns and entirely hide some. Also, I just discovered the following additional irritation: On Media Composer (Mac) usuually pressing 'Return' takes the cursor down to the next cell (in a bin, say). Pressing 'Enter' on numeric keypad stops the editing of the current cell and does not move the cursor. In the main Markers window (where theyare all listed), this does not work so you have to hit Enter then Escape to avoid inadvertently changing the text in the next marker. Dumb.

    Avid is riddled with these inconsistencies and oversights. It's UI needs a proper housecleaning.

    Re: Customize MARKERS Window

    Over year and nothing changes. OMG. It seems that more than their capacity. Is it too hard understanding, that the first we need is fast and stable application? Application that does not change from day to day. We working on it for years, every one have own habbits, and knowledge of interface, fluency tools - it's very importand things in our work = don't need new options instead old, and give us possibility to turn them off. I begin to think, maybe that team working on all usless eye candys (such as markeplace, smart tools, etc) need a proper houseclening.

    In three days it's been exactly 2 years since this thread was opened, and they still haven't solved this? Somewhat incredible, I'm not even mad.

    Let's face it, markers are not a cool feature but improvements would really help productivity. Is this more important than improving playback performance with linked files? Don't answer that!
