Although I do that from time to time. It doesn't give me a quick overview when I need to work with non-expanded timelines.
In CS6. The purple indicator line shows the FX no matter how expanded the timeline is.
Any other way?
Seems like a backward progression for CC if there's no other solution!
I like the colored line better.
What i do find useful is the colors of the fx icon.
no effect: white
fixed effect: yellow
effect + fixed effect: green
just seems so strange
