    Resizing of timeline tracks

    I'm probably missing something re: the resizing of timeline tracks. In Xpress Pro to resize timeline tracks, it was simply a case of hovering the mouse over thebottom of the track, waiting for the resize icon to appear and dragging up or down. With MC, resizing tracks involves some farting about with Menu items.

    Is there an easier method to resize timeline tracks other than having to go into menu's? Have tried right-clicking at various positions in the track icons but no obvious options present themselves; nor do the timeline hambugger menu's provide a solution.

     In Media Composer, hold down CTRL while you're hovering, and the resize double arrow will appear. In Newscutter Adrenaline, you just hover. Frankly, I'd prefer the CTRL +, because I find myself too often accidentally resizing a track when all I want to do it click on it.

    CTRL+L to increase CTRL+K to decrease (tracks have to be active - and watch out! if you want to resize A3, but the Source clip A1 is active it will also change)

     HIghlight the tracks you want to resize.

    Ctrl + L makes them wider.

    Ctrl + K makes them narrower.

     

    Hope this helps.
