We're getting pretty thorough in our organization. But I want to look now at some ways you can customize the list view and the columns. This can be very useful especially on a big, complex project. Let me show you. As you can see, I have the project panel expanded. We know that we can use the column heads to sort. But briefly, I want to show you that we can also adjust certain things about the columns. For one thing, we can make columns larger or smaller.
So if I want to make sure that I'm getting the full name in there, I can drag that out. If I've got too much space I can make these fit only what I want to see. Secondly, I can shuffle the order of these columns. So, maybe, in some scenarios, tape name is very important. And I'm going to put it right next to clip name. In other scenarios, maybe I never look at the tape name again. So I can move it all the way down to the end. The highest level of customization is found here in the metadata display.
We're going to get deep in to this in a couple chapters. But I do want to show you, specifically, how it effects the columns. If I twirl down the Premier Pro project metadata, those are the column heads. As you can see, only the items that have a check box are actually displaying as column heads. So if we go back to my tape name, for instance. And let's just say, and I probably wouldn't do this in most cases, let's just say that tape name is irrelevant.
I could uncheck it. Now, the information, the metadata itself, is not going to go away. It's just not going to appear as a column head in the project panel. Click OK, and you can see the tape name has completely disappeared. How much or how little you want to customize your columns will depend on your particular project, your style of working, and then especially if you get into actually customizing the metadata, which we'll talk about in another movie.
