Organise windows

Intro

Droplist of windows. Tip - type the first few letters to go to an entry...

E.g. type Pa to show the Parts window entry.

You may need to wait a couple of seconds before trying this again.

Show for Task Only

Shows only windows, menu entries && controls relevant to current task...

Changes which buttons, controls, menu entries etc are shown throughout Tune Smithy. Also removes windows irrelevant to the current main window task from the drop lists of windows in the Organise Windows window and in the Overview windows.

This is applied to all the windows relevant to the current task - they are all customised as necessary for the current task by removing irrelevant / confusing controls from them.

If you show an excluded window anyway, e.g. using a keyboard shortcut, then the window will be shown with its full complement of buttons etc. So e.g. if you show a fractal tune window from one of the other tasks, that window will be shown with all the tune options etc visible, (otherwise often it would just be completely blank or nearly so)

For more details see the message you get when you select or unselect this option

Less <<

Shows this window with either less space, less options, or alternative layout

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Since the help for Tune Smithy is currently a bit out of date and needs to be redone completely for the new 3.0 release, then you may find the on-line page for some of the newer tasks particularly useful.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

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

Other Dialog Star

Tip of the day - For All 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.
