Audio Side Bar

Last Updated: Sep 12, 2016 04:57PM IST
With the focus in the Audio pane the Audio Side Bar is visible down the right hand side.

Depending on your screen size you may not have all options visible on your screen. You can minimise the different part by clicking on the arrow next to the heading or drag the separating lines to reduce or expand the individual sections as required. You can also use the down arrow at the bottom to scroll down to the bottom of the Side Bar.

Side Bar Title



This shows which side bar you are currently viewing.

Clicking in a pane changes the side bar to the one relevant to that pane. You can use click on the different tabs to select a different Side Bar, even if the pane with focus is something different. This allows you to edit a different pane to the one you are currently working in.

Colouring



Colour Key Template


You can set up colour key templates to help you work with your audio. These allow you to change the colours available to you and also allows you to edit the short text associated with each colour; in the image above the 'Default' template has been selected where colouring a chunk red would indicate something that is 'Important'.

You can use pick Colour Key's from the drop down menu at the top of the Side Bar and use the 'Edit Colour key' button to add, edit or remove colour keys.

See Colour Key Templates for more information.

This shows you your key for colouring audio chunks.

The numbers are your short cut keys while you are working in the Audio Pane (if you are not in the Audio Pane then the short cut becomes CTRL + number key)

With the cursor inside a chunk or with several chunks selected, clicking these will change the colours of the chunks.



Section Colouring

This shows you your key for colouring sections. 

The numbers are your short cut keys while you are working in the Audio Pane (if you are not in the Audio Pane then the short cut becomes CTRL + number key)
