Sections can be sequenced in any order to create arrangements, without affecting project data. The sections don’t have to live on the project timeline in any specific location or order, because the arrangement determines in which order they are played back.The Arranger Inspector allows you to create unlimited different arrangements of the current project. Each arrangement can contain any combination of sections, in any order. All arrangements are saved within the project.Arrangements are not tied to a specific Arranger track, and can contain sections from different Arranger tracks. In the Arranger Inspector, the tooltip indicates a section's parent Arranger track.If the Arranger Inspector is not visible, click the Show/Hide Arranger button at the top of the Inspector pane.
