    bring all windows to front

    Hi all,

    is there a way to set avid to bring all the avid window panes to front when you click on one of them? Rather than having to click the avid icon in the dock or quick switch to avid.

     

    thanks,

    jayson

    Command tab to Avid and they should all show up.

    Hi codec,

    yeah, that's what I already do. I think i invented the term quick switch but that's what I meant, cmd and tab. but I usually have already clicked one of the avid panes so I'm actually in avid. then I quick switch (cmd and tab) which takes me out of avid and I have to cmd tab again to get back into avid. I just want to find a setting that you check that says bring all windows forward when in application. but i don't know if it exists.

    I have the exact same question! I also Cmd-Tab; but it'd be nice to have another keyboard shortcut, since I usually have multiple programs open (in today's ADHD world).

    You are questionning one of the fundamentals of Mac OS...

    Having said that, you're right that FCP had (has?) a setting called "Bring all windows to the front" which does exactly what you would like to see with MC.

    Maybe post this in the "Feature requests" part of this forum?
