    Hi everyone. I've got a simple question, but I couldn't find the answer on any of the forums.

    I use my 15" MBP and an external monitor when I'm working with FCP. The monitor is a higher resolution than the monitor on my laptop. However, when I disconnect the monitor from the MBP and want to do some editing on the go, the windows in FCP are always sized for the higher-resolution external monitor, not for the laptop monitor. Is there any easy way to resize all of the windows at once?

    I've been manually changing the size of the windows, but it's a huge pain!

    Thanks for your help.

    go to

    Window --> Arrange

    Select the window arrangement you would like, the default is standard <ctrl U>

    You can also make your own custom window arrangements and save them. For example one window setting when hooked up to external monitor, and one when using Macbook screen.

    Hope this helps.
