The ruler shows the timeline and the display format of the project.

Initially, the Project window ruler uses the display format that is specified in the Project Setup dialog.

  • To select an independent display format for the ruler, click the arrow button to the right of the ruler and select an option from the pop-up menu.

  • To set the display format globally for all windows, use Select Primary Time Format pop-up menu on the Transport panel, or hold down Ctrl/Cmd and select a format in any ruler.
