Browser infomation

Hello all,

Is there any way if finding out which project in the browser is the most recently modified as opposed to on what date it was created.

I have about 30 projects and three of them have got a bit muddled with the naming(me maybe being sloppy or revising the wrong version).

How can I tell which is the most recent of the three I worked on because I am revisiting a "Library" that i have not worked on for three months.

Cant see a column view option.

Any thoughts appreciated thanks

There isn't one unfortunately. Hit the feedback link, I have. :-)

In Finder if you right click on the library and select "show package contents", then drill down to the projects, does the Finder modified date reflect the last modified date?

Generally speaking I have found with media files in the finder that the latest Mac Os's are inconsistent when it comes to date modified. Sometimes I get done making changes to a library but it will not be listed as latest library in finder; but if you look inside it, as you suggest, you should see the latest mod of each component. But I'm always a little uncertain, and showing content of library is way more time consuming and confusing than just checking the library list. Sometimes I want to check to make sure I updated on my media drive and not my back up drive. To have to dig into two libraries is a pain.

James, not sure if this will help, but if you toggle from List View in the Browser to Thumbnail View, a date & time stamp is shown under the project icon. As far as I can tell, the date/time the project was last opened will be shown. (So this doesn't help if you are opening the various projects, looking for the most recent edit, as then FCPX will show each one as having today's date.) Hope that makes sense, and I apologize if I missed the point of your question.

Thanks Kripá and all for the feedback. I had not noticed the date and time in Thumbnail view (I never use if for looking at projects, especially since we lost the ability to skim through them. Why was that incidentally?)

Is that information definitely "last modified"? It looks like it is.

If so that helps a lot and information which should be available in list view as well as browser view.
