Simply drag-and-drop the index to change the surtitle order.
Of course, be sure your project is "unlocked" to perform such action.
Changing surtitles without changing the indexes
Create an intermediate surtitle or disable one, so the indexes are preserved.
It makes your job very flexible : intermediate surtitles play as any surtitle, but disabled ones won't be shown.
You can customize the style per surtitle and revert it if needed.
But you can also change the style for the whole track (bold, italic and underline are not affected).
To create a fade when switching from one surtitle to another one, use a transitions.
Click on "Apply to All Surtitles" to set the same transition for all surtitles.
Search for surtitles
When the project is "unlocked", you search for surtitles : just type a few letters.
You can also run special searches : surtitle with a special style, a transition or disabled ones.
You can create groups to organize your surtitles.
When deleting a group, Glypheo proposes you to move the surtitles to another group.
You can display the surtitles on multiple panels.
simply create several ones, then add tracks to them, manage the zoom, alignement, and space between tracks.
Also, you can rearrange them so the whole preview matches the physical world.
Pause and Blackout
If you want to change something in your project, without affecting the output, use the pause button.
To smoothly fade out the output, use the "Blackout" button.
Change the luminosity
Depending on the environment, it is useful to control the luminosity of the output.
Use the "+" or "-" to adjust the luminosity.
Import or export a track
Glypheo can import a track from an HTML, Word, TXT or XLSX file.
You can choose to preserve the style, and set a custom separator.
Exporting a track got the same options.
You can assign keyboard shortcuts to navigate through surtitles.
Also, you change the default font and activate the web server.
