    How can I remove Mode buttons from Composer window?

    Hello,

    In Compser settings, when I select 'Button Display at Bottom: One Row' I don't claim back any screen real-estate because I'm stilll left with 2 rows of buttons in the middle (see screenshot, here: https://postimg.cc/HVmh0jDf )

    Any idea how I can just have one row here? (As Eddie Hmailton seems to have achieved in this screenshot: https://postimg.cc/jnyNMsN5)

     

     

    Also -  any idea how he aligned the frames in his bins so exactly. Surely not by hand?! (See image here: https://postimg.cc/bGdtK0b4)

     

    Thanks for any tips you can provide! :)

     

    My info:

    Media Composer v8.9.1
    Mac Pro (Mid 2012), 64GB Memory, NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X 12287 MB.

    It should work just as you expect. Have you tried a different user setting and/or rebuilding MCState?

    As shown in the video he has ten additional/assistant editors... my guess: Done by hand, but not by him. ;)

    Thanks a lot for your reply.

    I tried a different User Setting and am getting te same result.

    I'll research the MCState thing and try that (hadn't heard of that before). Will post my results.

    Haha, no wonder those Hollywood assistants work such long hours!! Those frames are in pixel perfect allignment, my God!

    Re: How can I remove Mode buttons from Composer window?

    Update: I have trashed&rebuilt the MCState file, but the problem still persists.

     

    I thought it could be a version issue, but that's not the case (Have seen the result I want on youtube tutorials published before release of my version, MC 8.9.1)

    Has any else any ideas? Would love to solve this.

     

    The buttons themselves don't seem to want to leave the spot they're in, as when I try to insert a blank space over them (from the Command Palette) I get the error message 'That buttton cannot be changed'

    P.S: I'm on a shared Nexis network/system.

    Re: How can I remove Mode buttons from Composer window?

    Did you trash only one MCState or two? There is an MCState in each user setting folder and another one in "Macintosh HD\Applications\Avid Media Composer\Settings"

    Also there are some other settings-files that might become corrupted once in a while. In this thread...

    https://community.avid.com/forums/t/36514.aspx

    ... is a little summary for a start. Maybe rebuilding one or more of these files could help.

    If you try it: I have never had any trouble with these trashing and rebuilding procedures. But instead of deleting the files right away I would still recommend to just move the original files out of their folders and to keep them until you are sure that everything works. Just in case.

    Are you really on v8.9.1? I have no way of knowing if there was a bug or not.

    In 2018.12, when I change the Composer > Window setting from Two Rows to One Row, those buttons disappear completely.

    Re: How can I remove Mode buttons from Composer window?

    Thanks a lot for your help, Cutyes.

     

    I trashed the MCState file in Macintosh HD...

    Actually my user settings folder only contains 2 files - neither of which is an MCState file. (As far as I remember one was an .ale file. Can't remember the other one).

     

    Ill be back at my machine on Monday so will investigate further then. THANKS!

    Yes Kevin, I'm on MC v8.9.1.

     

    Glad to hear it's working on your end! ;)

    Re: How can I remove Mode buttons from Composer window?

    I have trashed and rebuilt all 3 settings files (MCState, SiteSettings.xml, Site_Attributes) accross three locations (one on the Macintosh HD, one in the users folder for my computer, and one within that folder which represents my own individual user profile).

     

    I also had a look on my colleagues computer (which is running MC 8.9.3) and his machine is behaving in the correct way (I'm running MC 8.9.1).

     

    I guess it must be a bug on my version?

     

     

    ....can't think of anything else.

    I just got IT to update my system to 8.9.3 and the issue has been resolved.

    Thanks to all. :)

    FYI - I had the same issue on 8.5.1. Switching to two rows and then back to one row in the composser window setting fixxed the problem for me.
