The matrix has 3 settings. These settings are accessed by clicking on the Settings button in the matrix tool bar.

The Title text setting is used when the matrix is printed. This will be the title on the printed document.

Count labels inside of instances

Fig 91c

By default, the matrix displays a count of the instances that contain a label or combination of labels. It does not count the amount of labels found in the instances. For example, if an instance contains 2 duplicate labels, the matrix will return a count of one. Occasionally for statistical reasons, it is interesting to count the amount of duplicate labels contained within an instance. Counting the labels contained within an instance is done by ticking the “Count labels inside of instances”. This will count duplicate labels. So, using the example above, the matrix will now report a count of two.

Add new labels and row matrix

Fig 91d

By ticking this option, the matrix will dynamically add new rows and columns on the fly during the coding process. This is an important feature during live coding/capture as the matrix can be used to quickly provide counts and video. This process is also important for using the matrix web exports. The web export picks up the changes in the matrix and exports the movies automatically. If this is not ticked, new instances will not be exported.

Keep existing labels and rows

Choosing this option will keep the matrix codes and labels static. If “Add new labels and code to matrix” is selected, the new labels and codes will be added to the existing rows and columns.

Replace rows from selected Timeline

When this option is selected and a new timeline is loaded in the matrix, the new timeline’s code rows will replace the existing ones. This is similar to the matrix organizer behavior in previous versions.

Replace Labels and Code from selected Timeline

This option will empty the matrix completely and use the newly loaded timeline data. A very rarely used option, but there if needed.
