Grouping Tracks in LiveType 2

You will find it useful to group tracks in LiveType in order to protect the integrity of an effect that may involve multiple tracks. Just the slightest movement of a track that is involved in a multilayer effect could throw the timing off for the entire piece. When grouped tracks are moved, they move together, so you don't have to worry about tweaking the effect out of sync.

Lets Group Some Tracks!

1 When you first open LiveType, you are given a single empty track. Type something into the track via the Text Entry Box.

2 Create another track by going to Track > New Text Track and type something into it as well.

3 Select a track in the Timeline or Canvas and you will see the Grouping button to the far left of the track grey out (The Grouping Button looks like a chain link).

4 Select the Grouping Button in the track that you wish to group with this track and the chain link icon will appear.

Now when you move either track, they will both move in unison.
