Select the instances that you wish to include in a new row, press COMMAND and select the instances one by one or click and drag in the timeline to select a group of instances.

If there are too many instances overlapping in a collection of instances, then merging may still occur for this collection. Generally, where 2 instances overlap the instance end and instance beginning points will be midway between the beginning and end points of the overlap.

Create New Row Hints

  1. For fast alternating possession sports, code one team’s possessions, then use the NOT operator, to create the other team’s possession row.
  2. When you want to use more than two rows, create a new row from the first 2 rows, then create another row from that row using it as row A and the third row as row B. Repeat this again and again to drill down further.
