The edit menu allows you to execute the following commands. Most commands influence the Sequence tab and the Device Tree tab and can be found in the respective context menus as well.

menu-bar
menu-bar_edit

[Undo]
Undoes a step of sequence editing as well as changes in project tab. Actions that are not stored to the timeline like changing a value on fader cannot be undone.

[Redo]
Redoes a step of sequence editing as well as changes in project tab.

[Refresh Asset Tree]
If any changes have been made on the local hard disc system, you have to refresh the File Tree in the Asset Tab to see these changes inside Pandoras Box. Please note that refreshing the whole tree will close all subfolders and you have to open them again. See the Asset tab to get information about how to refresh single subfolders.

[All Active]
Sets all parameters to the active status.

[Clear All Active]
This command clears all active parameters.

[Reset All]
Resets all parameters to their default values and removes their active status.

[Store Active]
Stores all active parameters as containers to the sequence.

[Store Active (Selected Devices]
In contrast to the above command, this one filters active values for those devices (layers) that are selected. The values are stored at the current time at the blue nowpointer. All active values influencing other layers will stay active.

[Store Active To Time]
A small dialog opens and asks for the time whereto all active values will be stored. The time can be entered in the format H:MM:SS:FF or shortened to SS:FF or even SFF. So, for example 3 seconds can be 0:00:03:00 or 03:00 or 300. Click Enter or the button [Ok] to close the dialog and save the active values.

[Copy]
Saves an selected item, for example a key or a clip container from the sequence.

[Paste]
Pastes the copied selection to the device where it was copied from in the Sequence Tab.

[Paste to Selected Devices]
Pastes the copied selection (keys, clip containers) to other devices in the Sequence Tab. To do this, select one or more devices holding down SHIFT or CTRL. Please see Sequence for detailed selection information.

[Cut]
Cuts out an selected item, for example a key or a clip container from the sequence.

[Trim Left]
This applies to a selected container, it erases everything between the nowpointer and the left clip boarder. The last key of a parameter before the nowpointer will be moved to the new clip boarder time. The video clip will now be shortened at the beginning.

[Trim Right]
This applies to a selected container, it erases everything between the nowpointer and the right clip boarder. There will be a new key set at the right clip boarder containing the value a parameter had at the nowpointer before.

[Trim To Clip Borders]
If a clip container was scaled down, there could be hidden keys beyond the clip borders. This command removes these hidden keys and sets new keys at the left and right clip border to ensure the wanted behavior in the visible part of the clip.

[Add Cue at Current Time]
Adds a cue at the current time, indicated by the blue nowpointer. Click onto the cue to select it and see its properties in the Inspector tab.
