I am just getting started with After Effects and I am following a lesson online.
I have noticed though that my timeline panel has a huge gap between the switches and the parent columns.
How do I fix that?
Will appreciate if you give me a clue.
As a matter of fact I've been trying to figure out how to restore the whole thing to default settings.
It said to hold ctrl+alt+shift while starting After Effects but it won't work.
I figured out how shrink the gap.
There is a divisor to the left of the "parent" column title. I grabbed that and dragged to the left and it shrunk the gap.
I would like to know though if there is a way to restore preferences to the default.
As I said ctrl+alt+shift doesn't work.
This should also work:
Also you can move panels around by clicking on the tabs with the panel's name, holding down the mouse button and letting it go once you've found the highlight that correctly indicates where you want to move the panel. You can also undock the panels by right clicking and pressing Undock Panel. You can then move the panel around and drop it wherever the highlight indicates. Then adjust the size of the panels, by hovering over the edges until the double arrow cursor appears. This way you can completely customize your workspace. I work with two monitors so I do this all the time depending on what I'm doing in After Effects and what panels I need.
