  • Track minimize/maximize question

    Posted by Kelly Griffin on June 5, 2023 at 9:46 pm

    I just went to maximize a minimized track and VP20 maximized it to fill up the entire height of the timeline. How do I maximize a track only to its default height? I figured out I can manually “pull it open” to an arbitrary height, but that’s cumbersome and I just know it’s gotta be something else (?)

    Yes, there’s buttons for exactly this that are hidden by default.

    Right click on your video track -> More -> Edit Visible Button Set… (image 1) and enable Min/Max in the list (image 2) and click OK.

    Then on your video tracks you’ll now see two extra buttons. The first one will maximize the track to full height and the second one will minimize. To go back to normal size just press the same button again.

    I did what you describe, but, afterward, when I click “maximize” the track fills the height of the timeline, which I don’t want or need. I simply want the track to be the default height it is when first added to a timeline.

    What am I missing?

    To go back to default height you can press Ctrl + ` when viewing the timeline. However, I believe this will reset all tracks and you can’t be specific to just one. That back arrow you get in the place of min/max when you press either one is your best bet in that case, but as you’ve probably noticed it goes back to previous height, not default.

    Weird. Okay, thanks for your help.
