User Guide/Workspace/Extended Mode
The Workspace extended mode makes all of STx's functionality available to the user. For a simpler Workspace, see the compact mode.
The Workspace is divided into the following four areas:
- The Application & Setup Tree. The Application & Setup Tree provides access to the installed applications (e.g. Recorder, FindFile, Real-Time Analyser), the profiles used for signal analysis (Signal Analysis & Display), the analysis parameter export dialog, the digital signal processing functions (Signal Processing), general S_TOOLS-STx settings like color schemes, audio settings etc. (Options), and links to frequently used scripts.
- The Detail displays the metadata in the currently selected element in the Overview. Depending on which view is selected, you can see the existing segments, parameters or signal definitions.
- The Script Controller can be used to edit and run STx macros or run the STx console. For a guide to programming STx macros, see the Programmer Guide.

STx can map individual channels from wave files with more than two channels to the stereo channels available on a Windows system.
There are many hotkeys available in the Workspace.
Drag & Drop Support
You can drag and drop a number of different file types into the Workspace window:
- Project files
- STx INI files
- Sound files
You can also drag and drop these files onto the Log window.
STx supports the use of wildcards in many dialog boxes. Here is an explanation of the syntax.
