Custom editors are editors that are designed to take over the entire display and not show a component list. For custom editors, the Instrument Set View shows the entire editor and navigation between the editors for the SysEx components is managed within the editor itself.

To close a custom editor:

1) Tap in the upper left corner of the editor

2) Two finger tap in the editor where there is no parameter control displayed. A pop-up menu of options is displayed. The first option is "Back" which will close the editor.

A two finger pinch or expand will expand or shrink the display size of the editor. Custom editors can be expanded to fit the available space or shrunk back to a 1:1 ratio. If an editor can't be displayed at a 1:1 ratio in the available space, Midi Quest will automatically shrink it to fit. However, there is no way to manually shrink an editor to smaller than 1:1.

 

The Editor View MQ_yes MQLT_no MQLib_no

A two finger pinch or expand will expand or shrink the display size of a patch editor. Standard patch editors can expand to 3x their standard size and shrunk until they fit in the display space.

A two finger drag in a standard patch editor will move the position of the editor in the view if the editor is larger than the size of the view
