In addition to calling from the main menu, this window can be called from the context menu of the scene.
The scene layout includes a chart and tables of the scene, which are a shortened or
duplicate version of similar calculation blocks in the main menu, or showing some other information.
They can be used to form a space around the chart on the stage. These tables will be shown on the stage
if the Scene Tables.
The font of the scene tables can be customized directly in the layout editor. Some scene tables have an independent font setting.
The text color in these tables is set in The chart palette.
These settings are saved in the configuration.
The background image can be used not only for decorative tasks, but also for working with Local Space techniques.
For example, you can set a room layout as a background image. At the same time, this scheme can be scaled to
the desired size by the option next to the name of the image file. And considering that not all the plan-schemes are clearly oriented
on the sides of the horizon, you can rotate this image to the desired angle with the neighboring option.
The scene tables can be moved with the mouse (when this window is open) and immediately set their own sizes for each of them.
Various individual parameters can be configured from the context menu of the tables.
By double-clicking on some tables, you can quickly call the parent tables, which are usually more detailed options.
When you hover the mouse over the scene table, a tooltip appears with the name of the table.
- GENERAL INFORMATION
– list of data on current modes and systems. From the context menu, you can choose which information to show.
- Coordinate system;
- The system of houses;
- A set of objects;
- A set of extra objects;
- A set of lots;
- A set of aspects;
- Set of stars;
- Aspect filter;
- Font - the font for this table can be set separately.
- DIALS DATA – a list of data about current events of all active dials.
The font for this table can be set separately from the context menu.
– a coordinate table in which you can output various astronomical and astrological characteristics corresponding to the position of objects and cusps of the current dial.
From the context menu, you can choose which data to show, in what format, whether to take into account the cusps, whether to draw a grid, set the font color of the data of the 2nd dial.
Parent table - Coordinates.
- 30-DEGREES BOX
– ruler with objects on which they are distributed according to their relative coordinates (graphic version 30-degree scale). This scale can be stretched/compressed horizontally. To do this, hold down the CTRL key and drag the mouse over any edge of the scale in the desired direction.
From the context menu, you can choose which cusps to show.
- ESSENTIAL DIGNITIES
– table of essential dignities
From the context menu, you can choose whether to show only the septener and (or) only the total.
Parent table - Essential Dignities.
- RULERS OF THE DAY AND HOUR
- In addition to the managers of the time of day and hour, shows the serial number of the manager of the hour in the day or night sequence.
Parent table - Planetary clock.
- SEQUENCE OF EVENTS
– a table with calculations of past and future events (aspects of dynamic objects, aspects to antiscia and lots,
ingressions of planets into signs, change of houses, change of phases, intersection of the ecliptic and equator).
It is also possible to take into account parallels in latitude.
From the context menu, you can choose whether to show the column with time, as well as set the number of rows for past and future events.
Parent table - Sequence of Events.
- PLANETARY SECTS – (graphic version of the main table from the menu Analysis/Aphetics/Planetary Sects).
Parent table - Planetary sects.
- ASPECT TABLE – displays of information on aspects in the form of a table (graphical version of the main table from the menu Analysis/Aspects).
In addition to the aspect symbols, their dynamics are indicated in the upper part of the cells: A - converging, S - diverging, and in the lower part of the cells - the residual values of the orb rounded to a degree.
From the context menu, you can specify that only aspect symbols are shown.
This table can also show declination or latitude parallels, but only with the "Symbols only" option active.
Parent table - Aspects.
- LIST OF ASPECTS
– displays information on aspects (antiscia and parallels) in the form of a list.
If a red line is shown at the bottom of the table, this indicates that there are calculated data that are not included in the table.
In this case, you can increase the number of displayed lines from the context menu.
If you click on the selected row in the table, it opens window with the dynamics of this aspect.
- Information about how many rows are calculated and how many are shown;
- the "Sorting" block - the ability to select sorting by various parameters;
- "Parallels of declination";
- "Only major aspects";
- the "Magi Astrology" block - various filters peculiar to this particular astrological School;
- "Maximum number of rows" - the table will be limited to the specified number of calculated rows.
You can, for example, use both sorting options – "Sort by orb" and "Applaying aspects first", which allows you to
sort the list of aspects by orb, but at the same time show converging aspects separately from diverging ones.
A hint for strings is also implemented. This is useful, for example, in the case of the participation of stars in aspects.
- NEAREST STANDING
– displays of information on the nearest turns of objects
From the context menu, you can choose whether the outer planets (Uranus, Neptune, Pluto) will take part in the calculations.
Parent table - Phases relative to the Sun.
- When creating events, you can set the path to the image (for example, a native photo),
which will be attached to this event.
This is exactly the image that can be displayed on the stage next to the chart.
Images can be of different sizes and aspect ratios, but when output to a given area they will be
scale with the aspect ratio preserved, based on the specified dimensions of this area.
- BACKGROUND IMAGE
– displays the selected image in the upper left corner of the scene. The image itself can also be dragged and scaled.
It can be useful, for example, for local space. If a Pointer with an elongated line is used simultaneously with the background image
, then you will not be able to drag the image. In order to drag it, you need to use
in the context menu of the Pointer, disable its extension.
It is better to copy images to the Images folder, since by default, the program will offer to select images from this folder.
- TRANSPARENT BACKGROUND OF CHART ELEMENTS - when a background image is used, this option can be used for full effect.
When closing this window by pressing the "Cancel" key, a message will be displayed that the configuration will return to its last saved
option, and will be prompted to still leave the temporary layout settings. This is useful if the layout was changed before the revision
any other settings, and the configuration was not saved. And in order not to start editing the configuration from the beginning, it is better
save the edited layout, and if necessary, make changes only in it again.
