Editing Palettes

Command Location: View Menu / Toolbars

MidiIllustrator allows you to edit the notation in the score using context sensitive toolbars. In this way, only those toolbars which are useful at a particular time are shown, leaving room for more of the score to be shown on the screen. You can hide or show the editing palettes using the View/Toolbars/Editing Palettes Menu command.

The editing palettes consist of the following toolbars:

At any one time, only one of the above toolbars will be shown, depending on the current selection in the score. For example, if you select a note, the Insert Toolbar will vanish and the Notes toolbar will appear in its place.

The toolbars contain a subset of the commands found in each toolbar's respective menu.

Palette Positioning

By default, the editing palettes are show docked on the right side of the screen, but you can move them to any other location, just as with the rest of MidiIllustratorís toolbars.

NOTE: Placing the editing palettes next to resizing tools such as the on-screen keyboard or the List toolbar may produce unwanted resizing of toolbar as the editing palettes are shown or hidden with context changes to selections in the score.

You can restore the default positioning of all toolbars by selecting View/Toolbars/ Restore Default Toolbar Layout.
