  • Locking Windows in place

    G'day
    Is there anyway of locking the Edius windows in place?
    I edit with 2 monitors and every time I expand and move the timelines the other windows on the other monitor move as well!
    Some times when I drag a piece of media or effects across from the bins (on Mon1) to the timeline (Mon2) it will sometimes seem to catch the edge of a window and move them?

    Any ideas how to fix the windows or does Edius not allow this?
    My Pinnacle and Avid systems allow window fixing.

    Thanks

    Have you saved your window layout, and have you checked to see that windows layout is saved on exit so next time it goes back to last used

      And if you want to drag one window and not have the others scale with it, hold Shift while you drag.

        Hi Mark,
        I had this problem and it drove me insane! it just started happening and made editing a nightmare. It was easily solved for me by another member here. Try changing your mouse. I had two cheapo cordless mice and both developed this problem. Changed to another mouse and problem gone. Switched back-problem back-totally repeatable and a new mouse fixed it.
        cheers!

          Yes I have saved all my layouts, and I can just put them back, but it's a pain that they move in the first place.

          Time to go mouse shopping!

          Thanks Guys

            They made hot keys (keyboard shortcuts) for window layout in 6.5x ?
