The main commands associated with programs and blocks are described in this article. == Skipping

The complete program can be skipped from playing. To do this, use the "Skip program" command from the "Program" main menu. The program including all blocks will be skipped; the corresponding mark will be added to the program and blocks names and the corresponding icon will be shown in the status column.

Skip_program

To remove the "skipped" status for the selected program, uncheck the "Skip program" option in the "Program" main menu.

To skip only the defined block, select it and check the "Skip block" option in the "Block" main menu.

Skip_block

The "skipped" status for the block can be cancelled by removing the selection of the "Skip block" command in the "Block" main menu.

Metadata Propagating

The metadata of a playlist item (name, description, custom metadata from Cinegy Archive, etc.) can be propagated to a program name. For this select the required item in the playlist and use the "Propagate metadata from the clip" command from the "Program" main menu.

Note
Please note, if the playlist item contains empty metadata field(s) and the program already has the metadata fields filled in, in the result of the "Propagate metadata from the clip" command applying, the former program metadata will be lost.

Splitting

You can divide one program or block into two parts from the current position via the main menu "Split at the current position"command:

split_menu

The second block/program will start from the item you selected before splitting:

split
Note
The current block automatically splits into two blocks when you place another block inside it. Splitting programs can be achieved the same way.

Combining

To combine several blocks or programs into one, use the main "Block" > "Combine selected" menu command. The same combining command for programs is available from the "Program" main menu. All items from these blocks will be united into one block.

combine
Note
Only blocks that are located in the same program group are allowed to be combined.

Copying and Pasting

To copy a program or block use the "Copy" command from "Edit" main menu:

copy

You can also use the Ctrl+C keyboard shortcut assigned for the copy action by default. Alternatively, select the corresponding program or block and use the "Copy" command available from the right-click menu.

The "Paste" command is available from the "Edit" main menu as shown above. The default keyboard shortcut for this action is Ctrl+V. The "Paste" command inserts an identical duplicate of the previously copied program or block.

Tip
If the whole block is selected, it will be inserted before the currently selected item as a new block.

Deleting

To delete a program or block, use the corresponding "Delete" command from either the "Block" or the "Program" main menu:

delete

Alternatively, select the corresponding program or block and use the "Delete" command from the right-click menu. To delete unnecessary program or block the default Delete keyboard shortcut for this operation can be also used.

Cutting

To cut the currently selected block or program, use the "Cut" command available from the "Edit" main menu or use the Ctrl+X keyboard shortcut assigned for this operation by default.
