While working in a project, you will sometimes want to change the way you view your bins. In standard layout, you can see the hierarchy of your entire project, which is useful. However, sometimes you want to open a bin in its own tab, or open in a new panel. That way, you can focus on the clips in a particular bin, sort clips in storyboard order in icon mode, or search for clips within a bin by typing in the search field.
Some editors like the bin window overlapping the interface, while others prefer to see bins open in place, or in new tabs.
To open a bin in its own floating panel, in place, or in a new tab, do the following:
- To open a bin in its own floating panel, double-click the bin. This panel can be docked or grouped like any other panel.
- To open a bin in place, Ctrl-double-click (Windows) or Command-double-click (Mac OS) the bin.
- To open a bin in a new tab, Alt-double-click (Windows) or Option-double-click (Mac OS) the bin.
You can change the default behaviors of Project panel bins by editing the Bins preferences.
