7.2. Manipulating Tracks and Sections

Right-clicking on a section image opens a menu with several options to modify that section's (or its parent track's) appearance, properties and positioning relative to other sections within its track.

7.2.1. Lock Section

If checked, section cannot be moved up or down stratigraphically. Select this option to lock/unlock the section.

7.2.2. Lock Section Graphs

If checked, graphs of section data cannot be moved up or down stratigraphically (this is the default). Select this option to lock/unlock the section's graphs.

7.2.3. Graph...

Opens the Graph dialog - details here.

7.2.4. Split...

Opens the Split dialog, where you can divide the selected section into separate sections.

7.2.5. Properties...

Opens the Properties dialog, where you can modify traits (e.g. DPI, rotation, visible interval) of the selected section.

7.2.6. Delete...

Removes this section from the current session.

7.2.7. Stagger Sections

Moves every other section in the track up by the width of the track. If a track is staggered, a checkmark will appear by the "Stagger Sections..." menu option; select again to un-stagger.

7.2.8. Trim Sections...

Opens the Trim dialog, which allows you to "trim" from the top or bottom of either the selected section image, or the selected section and all deeper sections in the track. Trimming modifies sections' Visible Intervals, as seen in the Properties dialog. This is most useful for removing extraneous imagery such as color cards or core catchers.

7.2.9. Stack Sections

Positions all sections deeper than the selected section end-to-end, with no gaps between.
