Connection points/lines?

In the new interface Apple made it harder to see the connection lines/points of connected clips. Only when you click on the clip in the primary storyline you can see the connection points/lines of the connected clip (if it has any). I did quite like seeing in an overview how everything was connected in my edit.

Now I've been searching trough the manual, the menus, and I can't seem to find a way to get them to show over the whole timeline. But in the review of ProVideo Coalition there is a picture where it shows all the connection points (I have a link underneath)

And, in one of the promotional materials of the Touchbar I saw a button for connection points (it was pointed out in another review too that it was for that but I can't find it back.

So does anyone know how to get that view back? And if nobody knows, how did these guys did it :-p ?

Hi Noah, thank you, but I am specifically talking about 10.3.

You can see the points on the primary storyline at all times and see the lines by selecting the clips for which you want to see lines or all of them if you want to see all. I found that information to be rarely useful though at times necessary. Not sure there's more to it than that...

I think it gives more overview. Now if there is a lot on your timeline with longer clips that span multiple clips on the primary you will have to go around clicking clips until you find the right one.

In the previous version it was optional and that seemed fine by me.

And I still don't understand how the people got it to be viewable in the review if it wouldn't be possible at all...

I have not been able to recreate that either Mathieu. I know what you are going for and would like to know the answer also : )

Obviously they reviewed a slightly earlier build where there was also a button to toggle.
