A Different Timeline View for Each Toolset?

Is there a way to have each Toolset dispaly a different timeline view?

For example, the timeline configuration I want to use for Source Record is very different from what I want to use for Effects Editing or Audio Editing.

I realize I can save custom timeline views, but I still have to manually change to the view I want to use when I change Toolsets.

For example, if I have custom timeline view "BigAudioTracks" loaded when I'm in the Audio Editing Toolset and switch to Source Record, BigAudioTracks remains the timeline view eventhough I'm now in the Source Record Toolset. And if I change the timeline view while in Source Record to "SpacingWide," it will now be the timeline view for any Toolset that I switch to.

I've tried saving the current Toolset, but that does not prevent the timeline view from being updated when it's chagned in any Toolset.

Thanks Much!

Hi Peter...

yes, you can do this.
first, you have to save the timeline view, as you said. remember the name you used.
second, go to TOOLSET/SAVE CURRENT.
third, go to TOOLSET/link current to.....you'll get a popup asking for some choices.
Select LINK TO NAMED SETTINGS, enter the name you gave the timeline view, and hit go.
you're done.
