    Can't set Interplay Window Display in MC 3.1.1

    We're just upgrading to MC 3.1.1 and the option to set the Interplay Window Display.  In the earlier version if you had a bin selected and used the bin muenu you could set the bin display - that is the same in this version.  In the earlier version if you then opened the Interplay Window and selected the bin menu that option changed from Set Bin Display to Set Interplay Window Display.  In this new version the option stays as Set Bin Display and is greyed out (obviously).

    Has anyone else come across this - or found a way round it?

    Thanks,

    Mercedes

    Re: Can't set Interplay Window Display in MC 3.1.1

    Hi Mercedes,

    Are you really on IP 1.1 still? If so, 3.1.1 isn't actually in bundle with that version. If you guys could upgrade to 1.5, you'll find a lot of different bugs fixed and better compatibility.

    In any event, the way you change the display has changed. If we are thinking of the same function, you just right-click on the type column (I think that's the right one, I'm doing this from memory) and choose your bin options from there.

    If someone who is in front of a system can help us with a better description, then we'd appreciate it.

    Thanks Blk Dog - on the ball as usual!  It's a right click on the Type heading and select Set Type Filter!

    Yes you're right we're also upgrading to Interplay 1.5 and ISIS 2.

    Thanks a million,

    Mercedes

    Hi again,

    When I looked at the Set Type Filter more closely it doesn't do what the old Set Interplay window display did.

    It doesn't apply globally - it will hold for one folder but not for subsequent ones - you seemt o have to set each one individually. 

    Another PS to Avid is:  The help still tells you that you can set it under the Bin menu.

    Mercedes, if you close all of your windows but one, set the display type and then open a new window, does the new window display properly?

    Unfortunately not!  I closed all the windows but one - right clicked on type - deselected reference clips and rendered effects and hit OK.  I then opened another tab (folder) and the rendered effects displayed - when I right clicked Type on this window all the items were selected again.

    Are you in 1.5 yet? I think you will need IP 1.5 for this to work correctly. Let me get to a system and check.

    Ok, found it. What you need to do is to change the view in the type column and then save that view as a layout. Then the view should stick for all tabs.

    Re: Can't set Interplay Window Display in MC 3.1.1

    Yahoo - sorted!  Yes that works - not quite the same as the old feature but in some ways better.  I wonder will it hold with the user settings?  We'll see.

    Now the help just needs to be updated!

    We're in the testing phase before the upgrade so our test system is Interplay 1.5, ISIS 2 and MC 3.1.1 but we don't go llive with it for a fortnight so I won't update my system details until it's happended - superstitious that way!

    Thanks for your help - much appreciated.
