This has been asked in the past four years... I need to update the comp layouts for the way I work. Many AE users often has a mess in their work when I have in front of me cleaning up and updating files. So would be great to be able to update one comp timeline layout, and then have a button to click that sends that layout to all comps in the file. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What do you mean by that specifically? The columns? Visibility options? Split viewers? A more detailed explanation certainly would help to understand your problem.

Yes. All. See attached. Before is when I get a file from a designer - and they have everything open in the comp timeline, even if not in use. Not needed, annoying. After is how I like my comps... clean. So would be nice to be able to set my "after" and then apply that to all comp timelines so when I open another comp, I don't have to go and rejig over and over and over again.

I see. Indeed having an option to toggle this syncronously across all comps would be useful.

I would love such a feature too. But I think I'd rather have it as a preference setting that when enabled, all comps will always have the same setting and when you are in a comp and change it, it just stays that way immedeatly throughout all the other comp windows within the same panel.

+1 For this - for example, I work with eyeballs to the right of layer names, so being able to set all comps to match my preferred layout would be a big time saver when working with other designer's projects.

I work with eyeballs to the right, so first column beside the timeline... also, what drives me nuts is when designers use solo toggle on for final work. Very bad. Solo for test layers only, not production.
