Overview

Editing in the timeline is the most common workflow inside Zrythm. The timeline section consists of the tracklist on the left and the ruler/arranger on the right side.

Tracklist

The Tracklist contains all of the Tracks in the project. It is split into the top (pinned) Tracklist and the bottom (main) Tracklist.

At the top of the tracklist, the number of visible tracks over the number of total tracks is shown, as well as a search box for searching tracks by name (not operational at the moment).

You can pin tracks to make them stick to the top, and this is useful for chord progressions and markers, so you can always see them.

The rest of the tracklist is briefly touched upon in Tracklist.

For more details about track operations, see the Tracks section.

Minimap

The timeline minimap is a little box that represents the current visible area of the timeline. It can be moved around and resized to change the visible area.

The rest of the timeline elements are explained in the following sections.
