Why can't you start another rack when the first one is full?

To be clear, it's stated in the User Guide on page 28 that 15 items is the limit.

Jeah, I see. Hmmm... It is a creative limitation?

I suspect the 15 bin limit per rack has been there many years, so it isn't seen as a problem by editors using Lightworks.

You can place these closed racks inside another rack, so you can have a number of racks containing related bins stored together inside a rack. Possibly the 15 bin limit is there so you you don't need to scroll.

Other Rack problem.
You can not sort the rack for example on name.
And when you close LW and start it later again the rack is up sit down.
I mean the first item is became the last.

LW was built to conform to human-based editor scale - not at a computer-based scale; LW facilitates the creative process of editing; that was and remains one of the strengths of LW.

Racks are more like book-shelves within which a human brain preoccupied with what LW users do best, ‘editing’, can still recall where important bits and pieces of textual material, be it information, events, personal insights, human emotions, moments of great clarity as well as moments of utter despair or any of the other components needed to compose their moving image text, are stored. It’s a bit annoying from time to time that just like a shelf the ‘book’ doesn’t always go back into exactly the same place.

The rationale for LW organisation goes deeper than simply the mathematics of clips multiplied by bins multiplied by racks. It has long been recognised that a library cannot be sorted just into alphabetical order; the Dewey Decimal system dates back to the nineteenth century, is still the universal library classification system and allows an experienced library user to walk down rows of numbered shelves and broadly conceptualise the subject content within the books on each shelf.

However if you have a pressing need for an unfathomable endless alpha-numerically sorted list then place you cursor over the rack or bin generator tool, right click and select the ‘display all permanent ---‘ option. To view a highlighted single rack or bin – a chord-click or the ‘open’ button will present the item opened/expanded. Selecting multiple items and pressing ‘open’ will present the closed items in a new temporary rack or racks.

Hi RWAV,

Thank you for the poetry you wrote about LW racks.
I also love them and I agree that LW have to remain a human based editor.
But I was only wondering why it sort my permanent Racks up site down and does not keep it as I left it?
NBut I can live with that.
