    Shortcut to switch between tabbed bins?

    I know you can switch TO the bin window with Cmd-~.   And in the project window, you can Page Up-Page down between the tabs.

    But if the bins are tabbed in a regular bin window, is there a simliar shortcut to switch through them?

    If I could save the individual windows in a stack and have it hold the bin position, I could cycle between them with Cmd~.  But it's a hassle, and the bin layout for some reason won't save between my two monitors, so it's necessary to drag them over and re-stack them each day when I come back to this particular desk and hook it up.   In short, it's inconvenient, not to mention messy.   And my bins are changing all the time in this project, so saving specific bin layouts isn't really practical. 

    Surely there must be a very simple solution to switch between tabs without mousing?  Has anyone found a working solution for this?

    Thank you

    BUMP. Looking for this exact short cut, too!

    BUMP! Yes would like this.

    It'd be very useful for optimum efficiency if the user didn't have to take their hands off the keyboard to do simple navigation tasks (and would also be great for automation).

    There's something of a shortcut, but you still have to use a mouse. At the top right of the bin container, there is a down triangle. Clicking on that brings up the list of bins in a popup. You select the bin you want from there. You may have to experiment to see if there is a keyuboard equivalent.

    If you float the panels or bins or windows, then Cmd~ will cycle betwixt them. Cmd~ will work on any windows that are floating and not docked. Just discovered this. You totally lose the docking feature, but I prefer being able to use Cmd~ over docking. I have everything floating, even individual bins so that I can tab from each to each with Cmd~.

    Re: Shortcut to switch between tabbed bins?

    Me too!!  Have been witing for this since it used to work back in a really early verison of tabbed bins (well, at least I think it did - it's been so long).

    Please please please make it a thing!!!

    And while i'm at it, Mute Clips is a binary tolggle function so why is it two separate keys?  switching tracks on and off are also binary toggles and they are just a single key which toggles on and then off.  Can Mute Clips also be made to do this so I don't waste two keeys of my already overflowing keyboard settings?!

    Thanks,

    Jonno

    Switching tabs? Or a mute/unmute toggle? Because if it is the latter, I hope this is not going to replace but to complement the two existing functions.

    I'm pretty sure it's the former (Tabbed bin switching).

    But if it was the latter (Toggle Mute/Unmute), I imagine your concern is the ability to highlight a whole bunch of clips including both muted and unmuted and switch the muted ones on?  If that is the case, and Toggle does revert to a Binary Toggle, then all one would need to do is right click the timeline, Select>Muted Clips and then one would Toggle them back on again.  The only catch would be if you wanted to do that to a partial selection of the timeline, i guess, but maybe they could extend the Select Muted Clips 'between Marks on selected tracks' so that if there were no marks it would do the whole timeline, but with marks it would just do the area between marks that you wanted to be affected.

    In any case, I had actually made this Toggle thing in a separate thread which I think you might have commented on  : )

    But do mention if there's any other reasons I haven't thought of why the current version is preferred in your case - I can't say I can think of another reason...

    Re: Shortcut to switch between tabbed bins?

    Yes, we had that conversation two years ago in the other thread. ;)

    - Apparently - correct me, if I am wrong - Select > Muted Clips cannot (yet) be mapped to the keyboard. Hence, more menu clicking, more time consuming.

    - Even if it was, it neither recognizes in/out nor selected tracks (yet), as you mentioned.

    - Even if it did, it would be at the expense of being able to just quickly drag-select the desired clips regardless of in/out or selected tracks.

    - To mute not-muted clips in a mixed selection you would have to also add Select > Reverse as an extra step.

    So, still, I see how toggle would be a very good enhancement - but not a replacement.

    Re: Shortcut to switch between tabbed bins?

    I think you have a fair point.  Perhaps all Avid needs to do is add one extra button which is a toggle, and keep the other two buttons exactly as they are - then we can choose to either map a toggle that inverts Mute and Unmute, or map the two existing buttons for their current function.

    I might update the posts I made to the other Mute Clips Feature Requests that I found in my hunt yesterday : )
