This might not describe a typical Lightworks workflow, but when using several video tracks to organize and preview material in the timeline to see how clips work together, without any effects, just stacked and overlapping clips, is there a function to 'flatten' the visible parts into one single track?

You can do a minimal track display in the flexible latout.

I can't see a reason to turn all the tracks into a single track, that goes beyond what FCPX does with its combined video & audio tracks.

I wasn't precise enough, I mean flatten physically, not only visually.

Basically, it is replacing material on lower tracks with material from upper tracks, but black (read: empty timeline) on an upper track must not replace material on a lower. All that preferably with one click.

In 14.6 you could do that by selecting the segments on the uppermost track and dragging them down (repeating for each V track as necessary)

Yeah, the segments. I see that selecting segments in row by click and shift-click selects material only - that's what it needs. Not exactly a one click operation but definitely fast enough for what I need it for.

Thank you.
