  10. Catarina is a Patchbay test app, created while the PatchCanvas module was being developed.<br/>
  11. It allows the user to experiment with the patchbay, without using ALSA, JACK or LADISH.<br/>
  12. You can save &amp; load patchbay configurations too.<br/>
  13. </p>
  14. <!-- Interface -->

  21. The 'File' menu and 'Project' toolbar provides actions related to projects: the common new, open and save.<br/>
  22. The 'Patchbay' menu and toolbar allows you to control what's inside the canvas. You can add/remove groups, add/remove ports and manage connections.<br/>
  23. The 'Canvas' menu and toolbar gives you control over the canvas zoom. The menu has actions for printing and saving an image of the current canvas.<br/>
  24. </p>
  25. <p>
  26. As with all the Cadence tools, you can hide the toolbar via 'Settings' menu, and also configure Catarina.<br/>
  27. The configure dialog looks like this:<br/>

  29. </p>
  30. <p>
  31. You can change the theme used for the canvas (more on that below) and wherever or not to use bezier lines (will use straight lines if off).<br/>
  32. Fancy Eye-candy has 3 states:
  33. </p>
  34. <ul>
  35. <li>Unchecked (None): no eye-candy;</li>
  36. <li>Partially (Small): applies drop-shadow to the boxes, this is the default;</li>
  37. <li>Checked (Full): box drop-shadow, fade-in/out animations and line glow;</li>
  38. </ul>
  39. <p>
  40. <i>(Note: Full eye-candy currently is EXPERIMENTAL, and will make Catarina crash at random times. The cause of the crashes are under investigation).</i><br/>
  41. </p>
  42. <p>
  43. You can also enable OpenGL for the canvas (so the entire 2D space is rendered in the GPU, which makes big projects render much faster) and Anti-aliasing.<br/>
  44. OpenGL is experimental within Qt4 itself, and will not work properly on all systems.<br/>
  45. Anti-aliasing has 3 states:
  46. </p>
  47. <ul>
  48. <li>Unchecked (None): disable all anti-aliasing;</li>
  49. <li>Partially (Small): applies only to the lines, this is the default;</li>
  50. <li>Checked (Full): apply anti-aliasing everywhere;</li>
  51. </ul>
  52. <p>
  53. Settings will be applied as soon as you press 'OK', no need to restart Catarina.<br/>
