V17 Nested timeline dumps markers - yikes!

gabgilson wrote on 8/13/2019, 1:46 AM

I just tried out the nested timeline feature. I had a long project with lots of markers to show good bits of interview etc. I created a nested timeline, then when I switched back to the parent project and all my markers had vanished. They are still selected to be viewed, and if I create more, the numbering starts from 1 again, so they are just not there. I sadly saved it before I spotted the problem so it looks like I'll just have to go through the whole project and create all the markers again. Is that a bug or deliberate??

"When switching to a nested timeline, the parent project loses its markers and regions, even if the parent project is saved before opening the nested timeline."

Support has told me "I will go ahead and get this issue escalated and PEF'd right away!" ("PEF'd" effectively meaning "escalated")

@Nick Hope That's great, thanks for the update! I also get a bug with the media explorer in 'list' mode. It sometimes won't let me select items in the list - so I can't drag them across to the timeline. Detail or thumbnail view mode solves it.
