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Since the help for Tune Smithy is currently a bit out of date and needs to be redone completely for the new 3.0 release, then you may find the on-line page for some of the newer tasks particularly useful.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
Or F2 - Reset / save / open for individual windows, right click for cat. list...
Shows the Organise windows window - which you can use to reset all the parameters for the current window - or save them all, or open previously saved parameters for just this window. Also has a drop list of all the windows and their shortcuts.
You can also right click on this icon as a quick way to get the floating drop menu of all the Tune Smithy windows organised by category
Midi In Dialog Star
Tip of the day - Relaying 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.
N.B. This list of neighbours may change when these pages are updated - based on the ones I use myself. Prob. will show something else here in future.
