Hey all.

Is it possible to hide marker comments?

I find it can get messy with overlapping marker comments, so it would be good to temporarily hide them.

This has been discussed before but I can't seem to find an answer to the problem.

I don't know of any way other than to shorten the text in the comments by hand.

If you make a line break in the comment, only the first line will show in the timeline. So, if you had a comment like

this is a very long explanation of what this marker really means in this composition"

you only see the "1" in the timeline.

Thus, I expect, someone with scripting experience should easily be able to make a script that adds and removes a line break to "hide" and "show" marker comments.

If you do it that way, even without the script, you can hover over the marker to see the full text.
