Editor Toolbar

Some features not available with all license levels.

File

Save

Unlike the Save button in the Run Screen Toolbar, the Save button in the Editor Toolbar does not have a drop-down list - it is intended as a quick means of saving your work, so including a drop-down list would unnecessarily slow that task. However, the Other Actions button does include Save As as an option.

Other Actions

To save space in the toolbar, some lesser-used functions are included in a drop-down menu under Other Actions. The functions available are:

Save As - to save your cue file as a new cue file

Print - to print your cue file (see Printing the Cue List)

Options - to open the SCS Options and Settings window (see Editing Options)

Editing

Undo / Redo

The Undo and Redo buttons will enable you to undo and redo field changes, etc. A pop-up menu is shown of the changes you may undo or redo, and several consecutive changes (starting at the most recent) may be undone or redone in one operation. Move the mouse pointer thru the list as required to select the changes to be undone or redone, and click on the menu item when you have the oldest required change selected. See Undoing, Redoing and Saving Your Changes for details.

Production

Click this button for production-related operations. A drop-down menu will be displayed with the following entries:

Production Properties - this is equivalent to clicking on the top node of the cue list tree. See Production Properties for details.

Collect Production Files - this provides an easy way for you to collect into a 'Production Folder' all the audio, video and image files used in your production. This simplifies transferring the production to another computer. See Collect Production Files for details.

Import Devices from another SCS Cue File - enables you to copy device maps and devices from or associated with another cue file. This is useful if you want to use the same or a similar device setup that you used for another production. See Import Devices from another SCS Cue File for details.

Production Timer Actions - allows you to nominate cues that will control starting, pausing and resuming the Production Timer. See Production Timer for details.

Cues

Click this button for cue-related operations, particularly for add new cues. A drop-down menu will be displayed with the following entries:

Add <cue type>, eg Add 'Audio File' Cue - there will be one menu entry for each available cue type. Select the required menu entry to create the cue after the currently selected node. Default values may be loaded into some of the properties.

Renumber Cues - opens a window that provides facilities for renumbering some or all of the cues in your cue file. See Cue Renumbering for details.

Bulk Edit Cues - opens a window that enables you to make bulk changes to a nominated field. For example, you can use Bulk Edit to lower the level (volume) of all or selected cues. See Bulk Edit Cues for details.

Copy, Move or Delete a Range of Cues - opens a window that makes it easier to copy, move or delete cues if several consecutive cues are involved. See Copy, Move or Delete a Range of Cues for details.

Import Cues from another SCS Cue File - enables you to copy into your current cue file selected cues from another SCS cue file. See Import Cues from another SCS Cue File for details.

Import Cues from a CSV File - enables you to copy into your current cue file selected cues from a CSV file (comma-separated values file). This function was designed for handling an exported ETC show file, which is in CSV format. See Import Cues from a CSV File for details.

Export Cues to a new SCS Cue File - allows you to select some or all of the cues in your current cue file and export them to create another SCS cue file. See Export Cues to a new SCS Cue File for details.

Sub-Cues

Click this button for sub-cue-related operations, particularly for add new sub-cues. Every cue in SCS has one or more sub-cues, and these sub-cues can be of different types (see How SCS Works for more info). A drop-down menu will be displayed with the following entries:

Add <sub-cue type>, eg Add 'Audio File' Sub-Cue - there will be one menu entry for each available sub-cue type. Select the required menu entry to create the sub-cue after the currently selected node, in the same cue. Default values may be loaded into some of the properties.

Favorites

Favorites

Click the group title (displaying Favorites followed by a down-pointing arrow) to display a popup-menu from which you can select up to 6 Add Cue or Add Sub-Cue buttons to be displayed in the Favorites group. This is to provide you with single-click access to these functions. Initially, SCS includes Add 'Audio File' Cue and Add 'SFR' Cue in the Favorites, but you can add or remove Favorites to suit your most common requirements.
