Attributes logic

Single selection attributes

Case 1

When you add an attribute and then add another one, the first attribute will stretch till the beginning of the second one. The second attribute will stretch till the next attribute change or till the end of the instance.

In this example, the instance’s attribute is Blue from second 6 till second 15, which is the beginning of the attribute Red.

Note that these are two segments of the same instance.Note that these are two segments of the same instance.

Note that these are two segments of the same instance.

Case 2

When two attributes follow each other and you delete the second one, the first one will stretch till the end of the second attribute.

In this example, the attribute Red stretches till second 30. When removed, Blue stretches till second 30.

Note that these are segments of the same instance.Note that these are segments of the same instance.

Multiple selection attributes

When you add an attribute then add another one, both stretch till the end of the instance. Since selecting multiple attributes is possible in this case, both attributes will overlap.

In this example, the attributes Blue and Red overlap from second 18 till second 30.
