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.
