Inline Editor Overview

Inline Editor Overview

The Inline Editor is a powerful function of MediaShout that provides tools for changing the look and behavior of a cue.


Working with the Inline Editor interface


Click a cue in the Script Area to open it in the Inline Editor. The first page of the cue opens into the editor and the remaining pages in the cue appear in the Pages Area.

  • Click a page to preview and edit it in the Inline Editor window.
  • To fire the cue, click the Play button beneath the editor window.
  • To stop play, in the Firebox click Stop All.
  • To save changes, press Ctrl+S (Cmd+S on Mac) to save the script.
  • Right-click the Inline Editor window to access commonly used editing tools: Cut, Copy, Paste, Select All, Undo/Redo, Bring Forward, Send Backward, Objects, Delete from Cue, Page Break, or Spell check.

Some editing tasks, such as setting page options, can be edited in the Pages Area without opening the page into the Inline Editor.


The Title Bar


The title bar is located below the Inline Editor window. This area contains the Play button, the name of the selected cue and page, the Speaker button, and the Edit Stage and Edit Main buttons.

  • If the cue contains and audio object, click the Speaker button and select the audio file from the drop-down list to edit it.
  • To edit the stage version of the cue, click Edit Stage.
  • To edit the main version of the cue, click Edit Main.


Selecting objects for editing


To select an object, click it. For objects hidden from view, right-click the Inline Editor, select Objects, then select the object from the list. When an object is selected, its formatting tools appear on the Home tab.

To prevent editing, on the Home tab, click Lock Edits.
