Locator: Sound List Editor > Tools > Default Attributes .
SoundMill keeps a list of Default Attributes for all five groups of Sound Item attributes ( Play Controls, Descriptors, Play Modifiers, Play Markers, and Classifiers ). These defaults are used when creating new Sound Items (except for Name, Desciption, and Media File attributes which are left blank for new Sound Items ). Default Attributes are also used by the Quick Markers menu items.
There are two modes. The Default Attributes Mode
button on the
Find tool bar
(Figure 1.) indicates the current mode. Click on this button at any time to change the mode.
First, pick the mode as described above. Select any Sound Item in the list. Now click the Save as Default Attributes button ( ) on the Find tool bar The attributes of the selected Sound Item will be saved as the current defaults. It is actually a good practice to create a separate dummy Sound Item for setting the defaults (either with the New button or Copy & Paste). It can be easily deleted when you are finished using the default attribute operations. And this way you will not disturb the settings of any Sound Items in your design just for the sake of settting Default Attributes.
Go to Tools -- Default Attributes -- View Default Attributes . It will show the Default Attributes based on the current selected Mode.
