Open any type of file recognised by Tune Smithy...

This will normally show the shorter list of file types recognised by Tune Smithy, and will go to the preset file type for the current task.

If you open another type of file then a new menu entry is added here to open the preset file type.

To see a list of recently opened files of any type, or a list of all files of that type in a folder, go to File | Recent Files.

You will also find a listing of all your recently opened folders there as well.

If you want to show the longer list of file types, go to File | Recent Files and unselect "Short list of types". The longer list is also automatically shown if the type of file you opened last isn't in the short list.

To change the preset file type, go to File | Recent Files Options..

Set to Open file

This is for the recent files lists you get when you click on the button to the right of the drop lists of fractal tunes, scales etc in the main window - or right click on the Open and Save As buttons or on drop lists of files.

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Since the help for Tune Smithy is currently a bit out of date and needs to be redone completely for the new 3.0 release, then you may find the on-line page for some of the newer tasks particularly useful.

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