Introduction

Certain MADRIX Effects allow you to work with different texts. Use the String Table to manage the strings as described below.

 

 

String Table

Overview

 

 

Open String Table - Opens the String Table, a window that includes all characters [i.e., letters, words, symbols, numbers, etc.] you wish to display.

Loop Mode - All strings of the String Table will be looped, that means the content of the String Table will constantly be repeated. It is activated by default. Can be used together with Shuffle Mode.

Shuffle Mode - Creates an internal list that orders strings randomly to show next. Deactivate and activate again to create a new random list. Can be used together with Loop Mode.

 

Left Mouse Click - Selects an item in the list.
Ctrl + Left Mouse Click - Allows you to select several strings in the String Table at different positions.
Shift + Left Mouse Click - Allows you to select several strings by selecting 1] the first string, 2] the last string, 3] and all strings in-between will be selected automatically.
 

String - Allows you to change a string or enter a new one. To change a string, select it first. To add a new string, use Add String first.

Split Into Characters - Is an automatism that helps you to split the string you have just added or changed into separate strings. Select a string in the list first and it will be split into several list entries [incl. word spaces], each with a single character instead of the complete word.

Split Into Words - Is an automatism that helps you to split the string you have just added or changed into separate words. Select a string in the list first and it will be split into several list entries, each with a single word instead of the complete sentence. Word spaces will be ignored, except if you enter two word spaces in a row.

Page - Is only available when supported by the MADRIX Effect. Allows you to manage the pages within the String Table.

Right Mouse Click opens the context menu.
