Explanation

This explains the functional steps within the sequence. For all the other XML details please refer to Formats and syntax

Each macro gets the currently selected fixtures and puts these handles in the menu property “Windows.PatchView.Handles”.

All fixtures in this property are then frozen resp. unfrozen.
