Tip #1179: Double-click & Mouse Tricks

Double-clicking is a cool way to change the interface.

Drag the small vertical line next to the chevron to resize the Workspace bar.

Hidden in Adobe Premiere are some interesting double-click mouse tricks. Here’s what I’ve discovered so far.

NOTE: I’m using the Premiere Nov. 2020 update. I have no idea how long these have been in the software.

Double-click mouse tricks:

  • Double-click the header – where “Learning” and “Assembly” are located – to hide it. Single-click the small space that remains to get them to reappear.
  • Drag the small vertical line between the workspace names at the top and the right chevron arrow to expand or collapse the space for workspace names.
  • Click the small House icon in the top left corner to return to the Home screen (duh… took me forever to try this).
  • Double-click the top of the Program Monitor to bring it full-screen. Double-click in the same place to put it back.
  • Actually, double-click the top of ANY panel to expand it to full-screen.

NOTE: This last double-click is the same as pressing the tilde key – except you don’t need to worry about where your cursor is located.

These are some very cool time-savers. Share ones you’ve discovered in the comments, below.

    The last one is helpful. But I have long ago customized my workspaces so much that I don’t even see things like “Learning,” “Assembly,” or anything that looks like a house (though that sounds vaguely familiar). But the tilde and making things go full screen could be helpful. I love these sorts of tips.

      Yup, that’s a problem with customizing the interface – it works better for you, but it is harder to follow along with a tutorial.

      Thanks for the kind words!
