Can the arrangement of Video 7 Audio tracks be changed in Elements 11

I am accustomed to Prem. pro where the video tracks are grouped & the audio tracks are grouped in a different group on the timeline.

Can this be done in Elements 11?

Details please.

    Only to a degree. In PrE, one can display either Audio Tracks, or Video Tracks, or both, grouped as they are, with Video Tracks and Audio Tracks next to each other.


    Personally, I like the PrPro layout better, as I nearly always work on Video first, and then Audio later on. However, many PrPro users beg for the PrE layout. I find it occupies a lot of real estate, and really like the separation much better.


    I am going to Move this thread out to the main PrE Forum, so that others can comment, as they will likely not see it here.


    Good luck,

    You are most welcome.


    Now, having filed Feature Requests with Adobe, what I do not know if any change has been made in PrE 11's Expert Mode. I am still awaiting my copy of PrE 11, and will pour over it - just in case.


    Good luck,

    You can always delete the empty tracks* and then add, say, seven video tracks followed by adding seven audio tracks. You could then save that empty project out to use as a starting point in new projects.


    *You can't get rid of Soundtrack, Narration, Video 1, and Audio 1 though. They are fixed. You can rename them.
