Standard self-explanatory commands. Playback always starts from the red blinking marker that you can see on the positioning bar.
To make a cut-out you first have to mark it. Therefore, first position the red blinking marker at the beginning of the cut-out. You can do that by starting playback from any position of the red blinking marker you initially choose and stopping at the desired position, then you can use options for moving back and forward 5 seconds to fine tune the position and finally you can enter the exact position directly into the counter. Once the position is set click Begin (or press Ctrl-B) for the first marker.
Then repeat the process for the second marker and click End (or press Ctrl-E). As a result you will get a highlighted zone on the positioning bar and that zone will be removed if you click on Cut. To hear what exactly will be removed right click on the positioning bar and choose Play Selection.
When the position of the red blinking marker is exactly on one of the markers its flag becomes yellow. If you look at the screenshot above you will see that the red blinking marker is positioned right at the cut-out begin marker. You can also click and drag the marker to a new position or while it is selected (marker flag is yellow) you can fine tune its position by typing in new counter value directly or clicking on 5 seconds back/forward options.
Finally, you can use keyboard shortcuts to move a cut marker if one is selected: Page Up to go straight to the beginning, Page Down to go to the end, Up Arrow to move a little bit back and Down Arrow to move a little bit forward. All these shortcuts work when none of the cut markers is selected and in that case only the red blinking marker will be moved.
Cutting: Place cut markers for cut-out you want to make and click Cut to discard that part of the message. You can undo the cut as long as you do not make another one or click Ok to finish with editing.
Splitting: Place cut markers the way you want the track to be splitted and click Split to get the track divided in two or three parts. What is left in the track editor after splitting is always that part of the track that was between cut markers. You can undo the split as long as you do not make another one or click Ok to finish with editing.
This counter shows the exact position of the red blinking marker. You can enter the value directly into it if you want to get an absolute precision. You can use standard navigation keys here: Home, End, Left Arrow, Right Arrow.
Windows 2000 and XP users will see this bar transparent. Anyway, it represents the whole recorded track ready for editing. The ruler above it shows the scale for rough orientation depending on the length of recording. Once you position cut-out markers highlighted zone represents the part of recording that will go away if you click on Cut. Click anywhere on the positioning bar to place the red blinking marker which represents the starting point for the playback.
By right clicking on the positioning bar you can access the following set of options:
This option plays exactly what is selected for removal so you can make sure there is no mistake.
Mark Begin/End Position
These two options work the same as clicking directly on Begin/End cut markers.
Clear Begin/End Marker
Use these options to remove cut markers one by one.
Removes both cut markers.
Select Begin/End Marker
These two options work the same as clicking directly on the markers' flags. When a marker is selected you can fine tune its position by typing in new counter value directly or clicking on 5 seconds back/forward options.
Removes seletion from a cut marker so you can move just the red blinking marker to a new position. You can get the same effect by clicking anywhere on the positioning bar.
Double click action
Here you can tell the program what to do when you double click on the positioning bar. Available options are: No Action, Play Selection or Clear Markers.
