Undo/Redo Function
In QL Editor, you can cancel the latest operation (Undo) and also cancel the cancellation of the latest operation (Redo). If
you perform an Undo operation twice in a row, you can cancel the two most-recent operations. If you perform an Undo
operation three times in a row, you can cancel the three most-recent operations. In this way, you can cancel multiple recent
operations.
The following table describes how to use the Undo/Redo function.
Undo
Choose [Undo] from the [Edit] menu.
Redo
Choose [Redo] from the [Edit] menu.
Please note, however, that after you perform one of the following operations, you cannot successfully undo or redo any
previous operation:
• Operations on the QL console
• Synchronizing with the QL console
NOTE
You cannot Undo or Redo the following operations:
• Edits in the Setup window
• Synchronization
• Opening and closing the windows
• Resizing or moving the windows
There are certain other operations that cannot be undone, depending on the function.
NOTE
For library or scene operations, Undo/Redo applies only to the single most recent operation. You cannot
undo any operations prior to this. Undo/Redo in these windows is available only using the [UNDO] button within the respective window. Even if you perform a scene recall from the Master window, you cannot
use a shortcut or menu operation to undo the recall.

QL Editor Owner’s Manual
Synchronizing QL Editor
When QL Editor starts up, the parameter settings on the console and the parameter settings in QL Editor may be different.
Therefore, you must first match the parameter settings on the console with those in QL Editor. This operation is called
“synchronization.” Follow the steps below to synchronize QL Editor.
1 Select [Synchronization], then [Re-synchronize].
The following window opens.
NOTE
If QL Editor is in the offline status the
[Re-synchronize] function is not available.
2 Select whether you want to transfer your settings to
QL Editor, or vice versa.
Console -> PC: Transfers the current parameter settings of
your console to the QL Editor.
PC -> Console: Transfers the current parameter settings in QL Editor to your console.
At this time, the All Libraries option determines whether or not Library data is synchronized.
If you select the [Dante Setup and I/O Device] check box, Dante settings will also be synchronized. Clear this check box
if you want to preserve the Dante settings of the QL console when using PC -> Console.
NOTE
The Dante settings of the QL console will be copied to QL Editor if you clear this check box and select
PC -> Console, or if you select Console -> PC.
3 Click [OK].
Do not operate the console while synchronization is in progress.
Offline Edit Function
If you do not want to synchronize your console with QL Editor, select [Offline Edit] from the [Synchronization] menu. To
apply your off-line edits to your console, select [Re-Synchronize] from the [Synchronization] with the PC -> Console
option to synchronize the console with QL Editor.
The Offline Edit function is also activated when you click the [ONLINE]/[OFFLINE] button in the Master window.
NOTE
Some effect parameters in the console change their displayed values depending on the sampling frequency. If you switch QL Editor from OFFLINE to ONLINE, displayed parameter values may change
because QL Editor loads the sampling frequency from the console and updates the display.
Other Functions
❏ Resetting to the default value (Ctrl( )+click)
Move the cursor to a control or a parameter value, then hold down the <Ctrl>(< >) key and click the mouse button to
reset the value to the default (e.g., to reset a pan setting to Center).
However, the channel faders and the send knobs and bar graphs can be set to –∞ regardless of the default value.
❏ Ctrl( )+Shift+Click
Move the mouse cursor to a channel fader or to a send knob or bar graph, and click while holding down the
<Ctrl>(< >) key and <Shift> key to set the nominal value regardless of the default value.

C INTERNAL DATA
This area shows the QL’s library contents. The items displayed are the same as in the FILE list (6).
As desired, you can copy single or multiple data items between the FILE list and the INTERNAL DATA list, and copy or
move them to a different location within a list.
To do this, use the following methods to select the data item(s) that you want to copy or move.
• To select a single data item
Click the line containing the desired data item.
• To select multiple consecutive data items
Click the first data item to select it; then hold down the <Shift> key and
click the last data item.
• To select multiple non-consecutive data items
Click the first data item; then hold down the <Ctrl>(< >) key and click
each of the remaining data items.
When you have selected the data item(s) that you want to move or copy, drag
them to the desired location in the other list (if you’re copying between lists)
or in the same list (if you’re copying/moving within the same list.)
• To copy data items (overwriting the destination)
Drag the copy-source data item(s) to the desired line in the other list or to
another line in the same list. At this time, a  symbol will appear at the
right of the data item number.
When you drop the data item in this state, a dialog box will appear, asking
you to confirm the Save operation. If you click the OK button, the copysource data item(s) will be overwritten onto the copy-destination data
items, and the copy-source data item(s) will remain unchanged. (If the
copy-source selection contains multiple data items, the data will be overwritten onto consecutive data items starting at that data item.)
• To move data items
Within the same list, you can move the selected data item(s) to another
location to rearrange the order of the data items in the list. To do this,
drag the selected data item(s) to a location between two other lines in the
same list. At this time, a
symbol will appear between the lines.
When you release the mouse button in this state, the selected data item(s)
will move to that location, and the data item numbers will also change
accordingly. (If the move-source selection contains multiple data items,
those data items will be inserted consecutively at the location you specify.)
NOTE
You cannot copy the Initial Data of the GEQ library.
D STORE
Stores the current settings to the data item that is selected in the list.
E RECALL
Recalls the data item that is selected in the list.
F CLEAR
Clears the data item(s) selected in the list.
G UNDO
Cancels the last-performed library recall, store, copy, or move operation.
