Scopes keep turning on every time I visit the Color Page

PostSun Apr 11, 2021 12:58 pm

Normally I have the scopes on the Color Page disabled as I use external scopes. Lately, however, they've been re-enabled every time I visit the color page. I've tried deleting and creating new Layout Presets, but they still re-load every time I visit the color page even if they were disabled upon the previous visit.

Does anyone have suggestions or has anyone else seen similar behavior?

Using DR 17.1.1 Build 9 on Mac OS 10.14.6

I can't find any way to disable them in 17.1.1.

Jim - if you click the "Scopes" button on the upper right of the interface (I'm using dual screens), it turns the scopes on/off. If you turn yours off, do they re-appear after you exit the color page and re-enter?

Ahh, dual screen. I prefer a single monitor, which offers no such option.

Well, if you activate info or keyframes instead, that sticks.
Don't approach Resolve with your expectations from other NLEs! They are all different.

Yup. Those both behave as expected.

I really hate that as well. HUGE pain in the ass. There's a long list of things that I wish once you turned them off they would stay turned off. "Live Preview" is one, "Wheels" in the color pallet is another, and "Scopes" are another. I like a way to turn them off permanently, rip them out of the program, and stomp on them repeatedly until they cooperate. I'm guessing I lose about half an hour a day avoiding all three.

I'm with you! It's a no-brainer from a usability standpoint.
