    version 6.0.0 - are these all just bugs..?

    after a recent post about inability to change kerning of individual text characters, only to find the problem is a version bug.. I'm guess my other issues are those too..?

    1. select tool, automatically selects audio if a video clip is highlighted.. only way to deselect is to turn the tracks of on the track select. on v.3.5 (yes a big jump i know) only chosen clips got selected.

    2. many of my setting boxes, or on the digitise tool, or output tool. the formatting is just off.. can't see timecode in boxes, in and out points only shows frames seconds and minutes as the box isnt' big enough for the full 8 characters.. ? bit of a pain when trying to keep track of whats being typed.

    3. changing start timecode of a sequence.. always used to do it by pressing CTrl+I and modifying the start time in the info box, i can't highlight the timecode and change it now.. only way to modify start timeconde is to change it under the start heading in the sequence bin.

    there's plenty more, but there are the main culprits annoying me right now..

    cheers for any offers of advice..

    Any reason why you've skipped the updates since 6.0?

    We've had 6.0.1.1 and 6.0.3 and now of course 6.5 as well.

    I think mosty folks got off 6.0 as soon as 6.0.1 came along.

    In the upper left corner of the timeline window is a link button.  If it's on, selecting a video clip will also select its audio.  If it's off, it won't.

    This changed to the Sequence Report.  Right-click in the record window to bring it up and change the start timecode.  Not as fast as CTRL+i, so kind of a pain.

    I haven't seen this; it may be an issue with your system.  What video card have you got?

    sorry.. my bad.. it's version 6.0.1.1 - upgrading is a work thing.. and it's ,ike pulling teeth getting anything sorted like this.. there is talk about jumping up to 6.5 soon...


    Carl.. thanks.. the linking thing is one of those issues I'm gonna be finding having jumped from 3 to 6 i think .. so mny things changed i spent my first couple of days trying to get 6 to work like 3... and yeah.. ctrl I was quicker, but sequence reprt is much easier than changing it in the bin..

     

    appreciate your time...
