The CueControl is designed to easily get access over the sequence control of Pandoras Box.

wd_widget_cue-control

To create a CueControl widget choose "Widgets > Buttons > CueControl". The mouse cursor changes to a crosshairs icon, indicating the create mode. With a left-click anywhere on the empty main background window you add the selected widget to the current page. Left-click again if you like to add one more. To quit the create mode, you can switch to the run mode with [F8], where you can use all widgets.

Widget Control

Sequence:
By default the CueControl is assigned to Sequence 1 (displayed down right in the command window).
To change the sequence you want to control, please press
[SEQ+SeqID+ENTER], e.g. SEQ+2 will control Seq. 2 as long as you do not change the sequence.

Cues:
To jump to the next / last Cue or frame in the sequence, use the arrow buttons on the left.

To jump to a dedicated Cue, please press
[CUE+CueID+ENTER], e.g. [CUE+5+ENTER] and the nowpointer jumps to Cue 5.
As long as you do not press another command like SEQ, TIME or CLEAR entering any number + ENTER will be interpreted as "jump to Cue xx".

Time:
To jump to a specific timecode, please press
[TIME+hh:mm:ss:ff+ENTER], e.g. [TIME+1041513+ENTER] lets the nowpointer jumps to the timecode 1:04:15:13.

A more simple way to enter the timecode is to just enter the last numbers different from 0,
e.g. [TIME+213+ENTER] lets the nowpointer jumps to the timecode 0:00:02:13.

As long as you do not press another command like SEQ, CUE or CLEAR entering any number + ENTER will be interpreted as "jump to Timecode xx".

Clear:
Press [Clear] to clear the current entered values.

To edit the CueControl parameters simply right-click on the CueControl and choose the menu entry "Item Properties", press [ALT+P] whilst the mouse is hovering above it or double-click on it when being in the edit / move mode ([F9]). The CueControl Property Dialog opens up.
