Window Areas and Elements
A typical window of the SingleTrack screen with its sections, elements and buttons is shown below:
The Toolbar holds the commands for the currently selected screen. There is one STS specific tool: Copy to track screen. For explanations on other tools see section Toolbar in page Main Menu, Toolbar, Timebar.
Copy to track screen
The whole displayed track is copied to the MultiTrack or EasyTrack screen. When the track has previously been imported from MultiTrack or EasyTrack screen to the SingleTrack screen, this track will be replaced by the currently edited version. When the track has been taken out of the clipboard and therefore it shall be added as additional object to the MultiTrack screen, there will be a new track added to MultiTrack screen.
