Timeline zoom

Mar 29, 2013

Shouldn't the timeline zoom support zooming out so the entire timeline can be seen... even for long audio tracks?

Is this a limitation, a bug, or is there a workaround like a keyboard or mouse wheel zoom?

I don't know what screenshot would illustrate the issue.  I may have found a different way to accomplish what I want though using the playhead and wheel scroll. 

What I'm explaining is that if I'm viewing the timeline at say 54 seconds, I want to move the zoom slider in and out and keep my view at 54 seconds.

Hi Stacy,

Thanks for contacting us and sharing that you'd like to see the entire timeline when it's zoomed out as well.

I did a quick search and do not see where others submitted a feature request to our team. I've submitted one on your behalf. 

I wanted to share some information about how we manage these feature requests as that may be helpful.

Hi everyone. Sorry for reactivating a dead post. But I was curious if the timeline has been fixed by now.

As far as I can see 60 seconds seems to be the max zoom out possible. So anything longer than 60 seconds has to be scrolled to. Maybe I'm just using an unusual  workflow because I come from a video editing / game engine background or I'm just misisng something. 

But it would be really helpful to be able to see the entire timeline in one go.
