description: changes shape direction for connected shapes
remarks: idea:


A longer file with macros for all possible directions is available at sb_shapesdirection.xml


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!-- Directions: None, LeftToRight, TopDown, HorizontalBlinds, RightToLeft, BottomUp, 
                 VerticalBlinds, TopLeftIn, TopRightIn, RadialMiddle, BottomLeftIn, 
                 BottomRightIn, BottomMiddleUpRadial, EndsInLinear, Random -->
  <macro id="" name="Shape Direction None">
  <macro id="" name="Shapes Direction LeftToRight">
  <macro id="" name="Shapes Direction TopDown">
.... <!-- more macros for other directions -->


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


How to use it

  • fire a playback with a shape
  • load it for live editing (with <Cue>/<Connect> <Shape>), select shape and hit <Enter>
  • fire one of the playbacks as you like to set the shape direction
