It would be nice if Apple would come up with a way to drop comment boxes (or bubbles) on the TL while editing to remind yourself that that particular clip needs attention - like a CG, more B-roll, effect, etc. - to allow you to continue editing. And while they're at it, add toggle on/off.

Hi David,

I use clip markers for exactly that.

Hi David

Michael Wohl explains using the 'improved markers' in FCP 7 in a video over at Mac Video.
multiple markers now stack in the canvas and can be color coded.

the video is in 2 parts 'What You NEED to Know About FCP 7' markers are described in part 2 (part 1 is good too)

Part 2

Part 1

not bubbles though - that would be nice!

Darn you Graeme,

Michael does a great job, he has a sense of humor too.

sorry Ken, didn't I do this to you a few weeks ago as well!
Yes he does have a sense of humour- something i guess you have to work at (g)! well ill be looking forward to your article.

well we didn't get a part 3 to Michael Wohl history of FCP- maybe in the near future.

OT - Just picked up one of Rick Young's books - very good and you get a credit at the start!
