23. Sequence box before editing duration
Click on thumbnail for full size image.
Figure 23.1 shows the Sequence box being reselected and the Duration field value about to
be incremented to 6
using the spinner at the right of the field. The duration is really a maximum duration: if the combined duration
of the child boxes of the Sequence is not that long then not all of it will be used.
You may notice another couple of changes since the previous main-window screen
Firstly, the toolbar has been dragged to the top of the main window. You may prefer it in this position,
although there is a drawback: it can sometimes restrict movement of the vertical divider that separates the
Property and Track views from the Edit, Waveform, Amplitude and Pitch views.
Secondly, the position of the Sequence boxes has changed: the Sequence box we are working with is now above
two smaller Sequence boxes instead of below. This has happened as the program was restarted and the software
does not try to preserve the vertical positions of Sequence boxes, only their horizontal positions, which
are important as they represent position on the time-line.
