Unable to hide Tracks tab in C7.5

Postby sasha-che » Wed Dec 04, 2013 6:13 pm

Hi, I've just installed the new version and here's the very first frustration: I can't completely hide the Tracks tab from the Tracks window, like I used to do to save screen space while editing some huge projects.

In earlier versions, I would turn off the Inspector by pressing Alt+I, and then drag the Track tab border all the way to the left, completely hiding it off the screen. In fact, I had a workspace preset for this, which was very convenient. This doesn't work in C7.5 though, which is disappointing and definitely worse than it was. I guess this is done for those who, once dragged the Tracks tab to the left, couldn't figure out how to make it back.

Here are the illustrations of what I'm talking about. Project opened in 7.0.6, my 'Tracks' workspace activated:

The same project opened in 7.5, the Tracks tab at its minimal width, it won't let me make it any thinner:

I wonder if I'm the only one who is annoyed with this. I work mainly on my laptop, often on the go, so saving screen space is important for me.

I think you want to use the second icon from the left in the topmost toolbar, and turn the pane off.
...yes I think it can be easily done, just take everything down to Highway 61.

No, there's no such option. I can only turn off the Instpector pane there... :-(

Yup, as thinkingcap said, looks like they made a change. Same on Mac. I am not annoyed, though I see how it impacts a user on a laptop or small display.
