Global Parameters (Panel Edit)
This option opens a dialog to edit parameters which are global to the editor instead of specific to a particular control.
To open the Global Parameters Dialog:
The Global Parameters Dialog
Each editor has the following global parameters:
Activate Control Id: This is a legacy function which is not recommended for new editors. Create a macro to perform the desired functions instead. When a valid control ID is entered, the the Retrieve, Store and Transmit macros are executed for that control each time the editor window becomes active.
Initialization Macro: this macro is executed each time the window is activated. This allows certain function necessary for correct editing of an instrument to be performed such as ensure that the instrument is in the correct mode to receive edit messages. The Initialization macro is limited in size so unless the macro is very small, it is recommended that the majority of the macro be placed in a Global Macro and just have the Initialization Macro call the global macro. (For example: the macro could simply be "Macro 49" which would execute macro 49 each time the editor window is activated)
Custom Skin: When Custom Skin is checked, the menu item Custom Skin becomes activated and can be selected from the menus. This allow a skin to be created that is unique to this editor instead of the default skin being used.
Align Flush: Most editors are designed so that the editor appears "correct" when there is a small border between the controls and the edge of the window. In the case where the editor uses a large background bitmap it may be more suitable for the window edge to appear flush with the bitmap. Check this option to obtain this look.
Redraw Priority: gives redrawing the editor priority over other processing activities
Developer Lock: If checked and saved, the editor will only be able to be opened by Sound Quest
Force No Show Selection: if checked, the editor will not show the red selection frame around the currently selected control regardless of the setting in Preferences
Macro before new patch receive: a non-zero entry will cause the specified global macro to be executed before the editor's receive macro is executed to load new SysEx into the editor
Macro after new patch receive: a non-zero entry will cause the specified global macro to be executed after the editor has completed a request to receive new SysEx from the instrument
Macro on Exit: a non-zero entry will cause the specified global macro to be executed just before the edit window is closed
Set List Change Macro (UQ): a non-zero entry will cause the specified global macro to be executed when a new Set is selected in UniQuest's Set List side car window. This function will only be executed in UniQuest
Collection Change Macro (UQ): a non-zero entry will cause the specified global macro to be executed when a new selection is made in UniQuest's Collection side car window. This function will only be executed in UniQuest
No Video Double Buffering: at this time, the option is non function as this option is automatically enabled with all editors
note: key equivalents will only work when the editor view has focus. If the panel editor has been used then the focus has been shifted and key equivalents will not work. Click the mouse in the editor view to reset the focus and enable key equivalents.
