Hello,

apologies for such a mundane question, but is there a way of adjusting the timeline track height in ae? an equivalent to shift-t in fcp is what i'm after. or really any tips on how to display expressions better. i am currently doing a lot of admin on expressions in my project and am using one of the ginormous monitors at work, so it seems a shame to not make better use of the space. I find making slight alterations to lots of expressions a bit fiddly using the default interface. is there a better way?

cheers,

jim

Besides having to drag open each track separately.... maybe someone will write a script :)

However, sometimes I use a text editor to write my expressions, and then just copy and paste.

I normally work with "brain dead" types of expressions, i.e. not very complicated ones, but I seem to recall that if you reveal a multiline expression, the cursor will become a two-pointed arrow pointing up & down when positioned in the proper place on the layer. You pull down to reveal more of the expression.

I keep the expression editor field very tall in the Graph Editor view, and then I toggle back and forth to the Graph Editor view as a way of getting to my tall expression editor field.

See this page for information on showing expressions in the Graph Editor and toggling to it.
