Or, click on the tiny arrow at/near the lower left corner. How much shorter than a single mouse click do you need?
DAVE.
With all due respect, that's not really very helpful. . In the manual, which I am looking at right now, I can find no other way of show/hide clips list other than the little button, oh, or going up into the views menu.
Am I missing something ? Is there a a key command already?
In answer to your "one mouse click" question, when ones hands are on faders mixing, a key command or button press is so much more useful than a mouse click. .

No disrespect is taken and none was intended. It actually was helpful as now you know that A-there is no shortcut. And B-a solution(even though it wasn't what you hoped for). Many of my suggestions may seem obvious or elementary, but many come here with little to no knowledge and I try to offer solutions for all levels of experience

Now here is a solution you may not have considered. You can save Windows configurations and save them on your marker list(but not on the Marker Lane). Doing this allows for keyboard show/hide of anything you like, including the Tracks list by using the numeric keypad. I have my "usual" view saved as "location" 50 and my Tracks and Clips lists open in "location" 51. So, on the numeric keys, I can hit .50. to show my usual view(both lists closed) and hit .51. to show both lists. I also went digging and I concur that there is no other/existing shortcut. That leaves us with the location method, or the mouse click. For those with short keyboards(missing the numeric keypad), I highly recommend adding a USB keypad(they are cheap and those keys come in really handy)

Ok. Thanks for your reply Dave.
That's all very time consuming. .
I have just achieved my goal.
I have assigned F11 to open & close the tracks/groups list & F12 to open & close the track list. .
It was remarkably simple.
Of course I now notice this thread is in the Windows area of Pro Tools software. .
Anyway. .
Have a cool Yule. .

Most excellent! It actually doesn't take any time at all if you build it into templates, but your solution is equally dandy. Happy Holidays
