Reordering Track Groups in Timeline

Postby DJS » Thu Nov 17, 2016 23:49

I want to re-order track groups in the timeline, particularly in SD projects. I have many Source track groups and one Destination group. To change the vertical order of these around, one should be able to simply go to the Track Groups tab and drag and drop them to re-position. This does not work. One has to go to the tracks tab and multi-select the tracks and then move them around. Very cumbersome with lots of tracks in each track group.

Can we have drag and drop re-order on track groups? This would be very handy.

For the work I do, I'd agree - a small thing but a useful one.
However, might it pose a problem for others?
For those of us who might have two or three 'blocks' of tracks, particularly in an S/D environment, and want to shunt them around easily, fine. But what about folk who may group and re-group tracks here and there during a project? How do you handle groups which are 'nested' inside other groups?

Minor issue: You define your groups, and create a bunch of tracks (or vice versa). Now you go to the Tracks tab and start to allocate a group for each track, set of tracks, etc.. While you re doing this, do tracks start to jump around to reflect the hierarchy of Track Groups from the Track Groups tab? At what stage is that track group order first defined, before it comes to the convenient moving-around part?

I suppose you could maintain both a 'new' and 'current' scenario with an option "Force Track Group Order", but that's just making PMX more user-definable and complicated than it is already...
