can't find the mini timeline

I don’t know if I messed around ardour, but I haven’t been able to see the mini timeline ( for some days now. I have search for it in “view” and in “window”, an also in Properties, but haven’t find the option to put it back. Or it is there no more after the update???

What version are you on?


Oh, yeah, that’s important information. I am on
Ardour 5.12.0
“Working Backwards”
(rev 5.12)
Intel 64-bit
running on Linux mint 18 cinnamon 64-bit

Edit -> Preferences -> Appearance -> Toolbar -> Main Transport Toolbar Items -> Display Navigation Timeline.

I hope it helps.

thank you!! I have tried that as well before. But after you mentioned it, I was trying it again and I realized that it was not showing because there was not enough space in my small screen, so I had to uncheck something else in order to make it appear.

So, it was checked all the time, but still didn’t appear. There was even this small blank space and if I right clicked there, I got the menu of the timeline with the: “30 secs, 1min, 2 min, 5min, 10min, 20min” options. So, as if it was there, but no space for it. Now it’s there! Thank you again!!
