  • Peculiar margin cursor in Avid 2019 bins

    Posted by Sean Lewis on December 5, 2019 at 3:42 am

    Hey there,

    I’ve just started using Avid 2019 this week (2019.11.0), and I’ve noticed something that isn’t mentioned in many “what’s new” tutorials – and I’m very curious to know what it’s for…

    When I open up a bin (in list view), there’s an icon that sits on the column strip at the top of the bin. It looks similar to a “margin cursor” in microsoft word. It’s a vertical line, with an upside down triangle at the top. See screengrab:

    I can grab it, and drag it left and right along the columns, but it doesn’t seem to affect anything. Does anyone know what that’s for?

    Columns to the left of it will stay in place as you scroll horizontally. For example, the NAME column will always stay in view when scrolling to the right to see more column metadata.

    Do either of you two by chance, know how to get rid of this white line in MC2022?

    Patrick, could you share a screenshot by chance?
