Intro

Tip of the day - PC Keyboard category - right click for neighbouring windows...

Left click for a tip of the day in this category.

Right click to see a menu of neighbouring windows.

The neighbours are the ones you most often move to after this one or within a minute of this one, arranged by popularity.

So as you continue to use FTS, it will learn your habits, and the neighbouring windows listed here, should be the ones you most often visit after this one.

Close midi out when you switch to another app. (if not playing)

This makes it easier to share out devices with other programs...

If you have this selected, and another program also works the same way then it saves opening and closing midi out when you go from one to the other - it all happens automatically. As soon as FTS detects that you are working with another program, it will close Midi out so long as there are no notes currently sounding. So then the other program will be free to open it.

This is necessary because normally only one program can open the same out device at the same time. Sometimes out devices permit themselves to be shared with a midi merge - that needs care anyway with programs that use pitch bend retuning as they adjust the pitches - and also expect the pitch bends to stay as they had set them in every channel.

Close midi out when you stop play

Auto closes after fractal tune stops, or after scale, chord progression, seed

Help = F1

Click for help for this window. Or F1. Other opts: Shift , Alt, Ctrl + click...

F1 or click shows the help for the current window in your web browser.

Some windows may have no help yet in which case the help icon is shown crossed out with a red line.

Shift + F1 or Shift + Click brings up the tool tips extra help window (this window) to show any extra help for a tool tip.

You can tell if a tool tip has extra help if it ends ... like this one.

Ctrl + F1 or Ctrl + click takes you to the list of keyboard shortcuts for Tune Smithy.

Alt + F1 or Alt + click (alternatively Caps lock physically held down + F1 or Click) takes you to the on-line page at the robertinventor.com web site about the current main window task - which gives a short introduction to it for newbies to the program. If there is no on-line page specific to a task, takes you to the main tune smithy page on the web site.

Since the help for Tune Smithy is currently a bit out of date and needs to be redone completely for the new 3.0 release, then you may find the on-line page for some of the newer tasks particularly useful.

Organise Windows = F2

Reset, or Save settings for this window. RIGHT CLICK for all windows menu...

Shows the Organise windows window - which you can use to reset all the parameters for the current window.

You can also use it to save the settings for just this window, or open previously saved parameters for just this window.

Also has a drop list of all the windows and their shortcuts, and related options - some to do with the menu listing, and some to do with window resizing and minimising.
