Each page represents one image in your animation. The currently selected page is highlighted in yellow. The contents of the currently selected page appears in the Drawing Space.

Sound Blocks

Each block acts as a container that can house sound for a specific page. If the block is part of a continuous blue bar, then it contains sound for that page. If it is a separate unit and white, then it does not contain sound for that page. A sound block cannot be partially empty or full. There is either sound for that page or no sound for that page. Two sound blocks may overlap. This happens when a sound block is dragged on top of another or when the Playback Speed is increased. In that case, the end of the first sound file is temporarily cut by the other and the sound block is represented with a red outline and backward arrows.
