Default Toggle Zoom to Selected Items/Selected Area

This is from another thread, but may have been missed by many going by the small number of respondents, so I figured it deserved it's own thread. It's sooo cool! Something we've needed for a long time, and it's finally here...you just need sws's latest plugin installed.

I set my shortcut to 'Z', and can bounce in and out perfectly now.

Here's the post by sws:

Here's an example. Select the item you want to inspect, and optionally make a time selection:

Bind "SWS: Toggle zoom to selected items" to an easy key (I used "D"), and then you're zoomed in, like so:

Press the key once more and you've returned to the original view.

Let me know what you think!

this is very cool, except for some reason for me, the toggle zoom control only zoom horizontally where my time selection is. the other zoom to item selection of SWS extensions work fine as you'd expect ignoring time selection. but not the toggle one for some annoying reason. maybe it's some setting i have activated or something? idk.

If you don't have a time selection active it should zoom to items, quite handy when you get use to it

I have made it so escape removes just my time selection and not my loop points so makes it easy to get rid of time selection to zoom in,

I love have the custom action to not only zoom to items but also just show those tracks on my mixer and hardware controller with the added bonus that pressing it again puts it back how it was

I prefer to View:Zoom in Vertical and View:Zoom out Vertical while setting my Editing Behavior vertical zoom center to Last Selected Track. Allows you to control the zoom level.

Regards,

DB

Fixing this for my next release.

I've renamed the existing "toggle zoom to selected items" to:
SWS: Toggle zoom to sel items(s) + time sel
SWS: Toggle zoom to sel items(s) + time sel, minimize other tracks
SWS: Toggle zoom to sel items(s) + time sel, hide other tracks

Existing keybindings/macros will be unaffected.

And, I've added three new commands that ignore the time selection: (they have the same names as the "old" versions)
SWS: Toggle zoom to sel items(s)
SWS: Toggle zoom to sel items(s), minimize other tracks
SWS: Toggle zoom to sel items(s), hide other tracks

sounds great tim!

did you have any luck with getting access to the new clickable folder icons to hide child tracks to allow you to create a sws command that can toggle the function.

Nope, no luck (yet).

Btw everyone, the above "fixed" zoom actions are now available.

Hi sws,

Will "SWS: Toggle zoom to sel items(s), hide other tracks" affect or change the Track List?

One thing I wished is that there were separate "Show all tracks" for the Track panel and the Mix panel.
