You can copy, delete, reorganize, and convert lanes and their associated parameters when creating Lane Sets.

Convert all events on a lane to another event type

You can redefine a lane (along with all event steps on the lane). The values of the events are retained, but the event type is changed.

  1. Click the name of the lane you want to convert.

    All steps on the lane are selected.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • Choose Lanes > Convert Lane (or use the corresponding key command).

    • Double-click the name column of the lane that you want to convert.

  3. Choose settings in the Convert dialog.

    Figure. Convert dialog.

    In the Convert pane on the left, you can see the parameters of the selected lane. The “to” pane lets you set the parameters of the target lane. The current settings (of the source lane) are used as default values for the target lane.

    Select the Quantize Events checkbox to quantize step positions to the grid value chosen in the right pane. If any delay value is shown on the right, this is taken into account by the quantization.

    If you open the Convert dialog, change the grid value in the area on the right, and select the Quantize Steps checkbox (and make no further alterations), the step positions of the selected lane are quantized.

  4. Click Convert.
