Drag and Drop (Instrument Editor)
Midi Quest supports drag and drop within the views of the the Instrument Editor and to the Collection and Library. This allows SysEx to easily be moved between the various elements of Midi Quest with relative ease.
In general, drag and drop work as follows. Tap an item or select multiple items to move. Then tap again one one of the selected items and maintain finger contact with the iPad. Begin moving your finger towards the destination or place you would like to move the selected items to. As you move your finger, an image will appear underneath showing a red or green set of arrows
If the arrows display red, your finger is currently over a locations where you should not release. If you the arrows are green, you can release and drop the items in that location.
Move your finger to destination and release. Midi Quest will move the selected SysEx to the new location.
The following chart will cover the possible sources and destinations for drag and drop. The source is listed in bold with possible destinations below in italic
