Greetings fellow FOOers,

After working with SpectraFoo's "Real Time Rack" instrument on a recent project and then reading what the manual says (page 16 / 17 as of 053115, I emailed Jon Stern @ Metric Halo with some questions. The email exchange is posted below for the benefit of others.

Hi Ra Byn,

The Real Time Rack is sort of a vestige of the OS 9 version. It was a solution to
arranging the tools before we had some of the resizing and screen set features. It
looks pretty cool so we kept it, but you are able to do more now with individual
windows. When you arrange the windows you want on the screen, here are a few other

-In Spectrafoo Preferences, the Horizontal and Vertical Window Grid sliders
determine how many pixels the window will snap to when you position a window on the
screen (try both extremes, and drag a window around to see what I mean).

-Go to the Sets Menu and choose "Save Window Set As" to save your configured window
sets and be able to recall them with an assignable key command.

-If you've placed a number of instrument windows on the screen and want to move them
all at once, hold the shift key and click-drag on one of the windows to move them

I hope this is helpful.

Best regards,

Jon Stern
