Anyone else miss the ability to collapse video clips?

I really miss being able to collapse video clips in my timeline. Things like generators, and still pictures I used to be able to collapse in my timeline in order to see more layers in my timeline.

Interestingly enough, it looks like titles are collapsed by default, however if I assign the role of "title" to a clip that's not a title, like a generator, it doesn't collapse.

I miss this, and I wish I could either collapse video roles, or selectively collapse clips on my timeline.

Yes, definitely missed. Send feedback and fingers crossed for the next update, I guess.

+1
Especially when overlaying video with alpha used for titles created somewhere else.

At the same time, they made the smallest clip size option TOO small. The one that doesn't have thumbnails or audio waveforms. TOO tiny to do much with.

On the collapsing thing (wasn't it called minimizing?) you're talking about the setting in the index that by default had titles smaller in height. I never really used it because you couldn't collapse/minimize anything that was in the primary or a secondary. Titles included. So it seemed kinda useless. Still, they took it away just like they did "expand all" and "collapse all" (that's where "collapse" is used!) for audio video clips. Now it's been replaced by lanes which isn't needed until you're ready to mix and output. Apple seems to think that lanes was the end all fix all and took away a few related features.
