AMCS - the Advanced Music Construction System

FUNCTION PANEL (SECONDARY)		the Advance Music Construction System


	Track Editor: Function Panel (secondary)


	Only applicable to implementation 1 and onward.

	This part of the documentation explains the purpose and use of the
Function Panel. The Track Editor Function Panel offers many cue modifiers for
use with the Track Matrix.


	The Function Panel in the Track Editor section can be raised with either
the menu key on the keyboard, the middle mouse button (if present) or the toggle
Panel button on the Side Bar, the Panel itself consists of a grid of icons which
can be pressed and are normally subdivided into groups by the type of their
action and what they change. Some operations of the individual icons can also
process a selection of items. To access secondary or tertiary panels, the toggle
Panel button on the Side Bar will indicate which panel is present and can be set
by raising multiple times.
