The Status Bar



The status bar is a small area at the bottom of the main application window where various status messages and other feedback are displayed.



The status message changes as you highlight different menu commands to display a more detailed description of the selected command. The message also updates when tool tips are displayed above toolbar buttons.


The performance state area is green during playback, red during recording and inactive otherwise.


The text in the entry mode display is red when the program is in Insert Mode, or blue when the program is in Select Mode. When in Insert Mode, the entry mode describes the current type of symbol selected from the Input Palette.
