Ws dialog display layout settings.png

You can modify some basic Workspace layout and formatting options using this dialog, which can be found in the Application & Setup Tree under Options.

Set List Content

STx projects can contain audio data and links. The user can choose to display all the data (All-Sets) or just the audio data (Audio-Sets) by default.

Sound File and Sequence Content

Set which Workspace Detail window is active by default. To activate the other window whilst using the Workspace, click on the appropriate View button (Signal, Parameter, Segment).


The user can choose which default sort order should be used to display the sets, segments and parameters in the Detail. If the checkbox sort ... by is not checked, the the underlying XML ordering is used.

"Set" Attributes & "Segment" Attributes

Press either one of these buttons to select which attributes should be displayed in the Detail window. By default, just the required attributes (ID, Begin, Length, Chn) are shown. If your project is large, this may take some time. Note that you can display all attributes in the project by pressing the Resource attribute.png button in the Workspace.

Global Time Unit

Here you can set the time unit used in the Workspace windows. The format omits the hours and minutes if the signal is not that long enough.
