Scopes disappear

Roger Bansemer wrote on 5/31/2024, 9:10 AM

I have scopes until I hit Alt G for my color correction and when I do that my scopes disappear and are not even on the line with other things like the FX, hub, etc. Any idea as to how I can fix this. Here's a video to show you.
Thanks

Alt+G is for Color Correcting, Alt+9 is for Media Generators. If you edited your keyboard shortcuts, resetting Vegas to Defaults will restore them.

Is the box ticked in View / Window / Video Scopes?

Note that there is a key sequence that toggles the switch: Ctrl + Alt + 2.

Less likely. If you use multiple monitors, it might be on another monitor.

Yes, that box is checked.

I have quite a few keyboard shortcuts set for various things. So if there is anyway to resolve this without removing all of my shortcuts it would be nice. Right now I can't color correct because of this. Never happened before.

If you put the scopes back where they belong, don't they appear the next time you hit alt + g? I have them shrink from time to time when I switch between different size monitors and have to resize the various tabs. Alt + g essentially opens up a window layout that is different from your normal custom one, but you can customize that one in turn.

OK... maybe getting close to what I need. So Alt G has a different windows layout which I didn't know. Where do I go to set up that windows layout? BTW I only use one monitor.

Arrange the windows as you want them and save the layout.

Well that was bizarre. Fixed now thanks to all of your posts here in the forum. Don't know what I'd do without this. Thanks very much.

You can make a copy of your favorite layout(s) and save them in case you have to reset Vegas or otherwise hose them up.

Another way to fix the problem is to note the location of the Color Grading Mode layout file and delete it. The storage location is revealed in View/Window Layouts/Organize Layouts. Vegas will then restore the default CGP layout and file the next time you go into CGP. It updates that file everytime you change the layout while in CGP. If you come up with a custom CGP layout you really like, you can back up that file and restore if it gets messed up again.
