A very usdeful tool. It was introduced in Version 12 and one of Sony's accmpanying tutorials (Gary Ribholz) gave an excellent demonstration of its usefulness. The use of 5 on the numerical keypad makes it easy to restore the screen to normal.
this feature annoys me. In a complex project, it takes a very long time to return from Expanded to normal mode. Up to 20 seconds. Please change the keyboard shortcut. Double clicking the mouse in Vegas is the punishment of God.
ACK! Don't do THAT! Then everybody who needs to name a track header and double clicks in slightly the wrong (invisible) spot will open expanded track mode and then there will be even more complaining! Leave it as right-click submenu choice.
If you want to turn it off in the "deprecated tab" that's OK by me.
(UI design by democracy seems like a really bad idea.)
Yes, get rid of this feature and put some useful keyboard short-cuts in their place like Slip Edit keyboard short-cuts. This LJ edit with expanded edit mode stuff is nonsense that hardly anyone knows how to use.
I’ve answered forum posts about it many more times than I’ve used it or triggered by accident, but I see no need to deprecate it. An Internal Preference for the people who are really adamant about banishing it would pass for me.
pierre-k this feature annoys me. In a complex project, it takes a very long time to return from Expanded to normal mode. Up to 20 seconds. Please change the keyboard shortcut. Double clicking the mouse in Vegas is the punishment of God.
I suggest for example Triple click mouse.
The use of the 5 key (see my previous post) will save all that time.
Grazie Don't hold back Richard! Speak as you find. No point beating around the Bush here
Sometimes you guys crack me up! This is a funny thread. Let me just say that if we removed every feature that at least one guy has never used in a million years of editing on VEGAS, we'd be calling the product Do-nothing Editor Light instead of VEGAS Pro! Grazie, you know better than to start such a silly line of argument! Ha! (I only scold because I love...)
The fact that VEGAS Pro has so many features that you have never used is one of our strengths. Some other guy uses it to be sure, and probably doesn't use one of your favorite features. Everybody works his/her own way. That's why VEGAS users are 100% happy all the time. Oh...wait...
Silliness aside, while we don't plan to remove this feature anytime soon, clearly it's the double-click on event edges that trips you guys up most often, and you've shared some good ideas on how we might solve that piece of it and thus "fix" this for everyone.
