Working with Information Columns in Text View

Information columns tell you everything from the starting timecode to the creation date of a media object. While a bin's Brief display includes only five information columns, a bin's Text display can contain up to 64 columns, including custom columns (see Table 5.4, “Bin Column Headings”).
