Picture in picture track was created by Pamela

Posted 07 Oct 2023 00:58 #1
I have Movie Studio 17. I am using the "picture in picture" track. Problems : 1. It does not label itself picture in picture even though the .jpg I put up there comes as a pic in pic. I found the plug in for picture in picture, however, the tutorial says that that track should be exclusively for pic in pic. I cannot get the track labels to show their tools as I see in the tutorials. They stay small as in the screen shot. There must be an easy thing I have missed. I do have build 223 which seems to be the latest and Derek said "In the last few updates the track is labeled "picture in picture", so I would like to know what I am doing wrong or leaving out to miss this feature.

Help, please. Screen shot is attached. Thanks, Pamela

You've squashed up what's to the left of the tracks.  Drag it out so it looks like this

Thank you. I agree but I have dragged and dragged and nothing expands. I will reboot my computer and see if that fixes it. I hope I do not have to reinstall the program.

Try a "Factory Reset".  www.moviestudiozen.com/free-tutorials/doctor-zen-faq/how-to-reset-sony-software-to-default-settings

It often fixes strange behaviour.

According to the Help items double clicking on the right edge of the line between the header and tracks will also restore the headers to full width.

Thank you. thank you. Thank you! The double click worked! (sent a screen shot in jubilation. ) Please, what words did you use in the content and index help file to find that solution? I have tried to duplicate.

Thanks,
Pamela

I agree it's not easy to find things in the Help system.

Going down the list under Timeline I noticed "track list".  It appears there at the very bottom.
