Sorry, should have said I am using Windows 7 if that makes any difference.
What are your expectations - expand the Timeline or to increase the Track size?
With your focus on the -+ Zoom Out Zoom In above the Timeline, check out the slider.
When you move the slider all the way to the right (max)
And, to the immediate right of the Render button is an icon "Fit to Visible Timeline" (shortcut \) if you need to use that.
Are you saying that none of that happens when you move the slider to max (Zoom In) to min (Zoom Out)?
Or are you looking for the Large track size which can be obtained by right clicking near the track name and selecting from the drop
down menu Track Size...Large? The following is screenshot 1 with the default location for the zoom slider and with Track Size = Large.
Please review and consider. If the above does not address your situation, then we will go for the deletion of
the Adobe Premiere Elements Prefs file.
Local Disk C
and in the 13.0 Folder is the Adobe Premiere Elements Prefs file that you delete. If that does not work, then you delete the whole 13.0
Folder in which the Adobe Premiere Elements Prefs file exists. Make sure that you are not working with hidden folders enabled.
Looking forward to your results.
Thanks for the reply.
I want to expand/contract timeline, not increase the track size.
I want to achieve what the slider does, but using the keyboard shortcuts. The slider works, as does clicking on the large and small squares either side. However, the + and - keys do not have any effect at all. When I hover over the large and small squares either side of the slider, it confirms that the shortcuts should be + and - respectively, as does any documentation I see online.
Thanks for the reply with the additional information.
Have you verified under Edit Menu/Keyboard Customization/Application and Timeline category what shortcuts the program
has set for Zoom In and Zoom Out...
Use of these shortcuts proceeds with a "tap by tap" of the shortcut key per movement, not a go to max or go to min
immediately. As written above, no keyboard modifier is indicated, such at Shift or Ctrl. And, I find that these shortcuts work
in the Expert workspace as well as the Quick workspace.
If no slider response to the shortcuts, then consider the deletion of the Adobe Premiere Elements Prefs file as detailed in post 2.
We will be watching for your progress.
Add On...If one changes the Zoom Out keyboard shortcut from - to Ctrl+B, then, in the program, the mouse hover is showing Ctrl+B not - any
more. So, I am expecting that your look at the Keyboard Customization area will be OK. But worth the look just in case. Then please consider the
Adobe Premiere Elements Prefs file deletion and, if necessary, deletion of the whole 13.0 Folder in which it exists. Also, if you have not updated from 13 to 13.1,
please do so using an opened project's Help Menu/Update.
At home now and have checked again.
The "-" and "=" are working to expand and contract the timeline. I have a) been using the "minus sign" on the number pad of my keyboard, which doesn't do the same function as the "dash" symbol, and b) I found online references to using the "+" sign to expand the timeline, when actually it should be the "=".
So, now I know that both are working, how can I change these to "plus" and "minus" signs. I can't see the option in the Keyboard Customization.
I do not think that we have a choice of + or = from that computer keyboard key. No + no matter how I tried with or without caps in effect when trying to establish + as the keyboard shortcut for Zoom In (under Edit Menu/Keyboard Customization/Application/Timeline.
I think that I would rather say with the as is, rather than go to shortcuts such as
p for plus reflecting Zoom In
m for minus reflecting Zoom Out
