The File menu explained

New
Clears up the edit window so that you can create a new cuesheet.

 

 

Open  |  From file
Opens a new cue file and loads it into the edit window.

 

Open  |  From clipboard
When you have a cuesheet copied into your clipboard (e.g. taken from a website) you can open it directly in QeD.

Note: QeD allows you to work on one file at a time, so clicking on New or Open will close any cues that you are working on (sort of like Notepad in Windows:)).

 

 

Save
Saves the file you are currently working on.

 

 

Save as
Saves the cuesheet to a file of your choice.

 

 

Import  |  From tracklist
Reads a tracklist file (with a selected tracklist import format) and creates a cuesheet based on it. If the tracklist does not contain index values they are set to 0.

 

Import  |  From clipboard
Works just like the one above, but reads the tracklist from the clipboard.

 

Import  |  into current cue  |  Times from cue
Reads index values from a cue file and puts them in the cuesheet that is currently being edited.

Let's say you are editing this file:

  TRACK 01 AUDIO
    PERFORMER "Unit Response"
    TITLE "Teleport"
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
  TRACK 02 AUDIO
    PERFORMER "Automode"
    TITLE "The Battle For Saturnus"
    INDEX 01 06:33:00
  TRACK 03 AUDIO
    PERFORMER "Noval vs. Soldout"
    TITLE "Maybe Tomorrow"
    INDEX 01 12:12:20
  TRACK 04 AUDIO
    PERFORMER "Lolo"
    TITLE "Why ?"
    INDEX 01 19:16:20

As you can see it has four tracks. When you import from a cue that has four or more tracks all the indexes will be changed. For example you want to import times from this cue:

  TRACK 01 AUDIO
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
  TRACK 02 AUDIO
    INDEX 01 04:23:00
  TRACK 03 AUDIO
    INDEX 01 10:17:20
  TRACK 04 AUDIO
    INDEX 01 15:54:10
  TRACK 05 AUDIO
    INDEX 01 21:16:00
  TRACK 06 AUDIO
    INDEX 01 28:01:50

This will change your cue like this:

  TRACK 01 AUDIO
    PERFORMER "Unit Response"
    TITLE "Teleport"
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
  TRACK 02 AUDIO
    PERFORMER "Automode"
    TITLE "The Battle For Saturnus"
    INDEX 01 04:23:00
  TRACK 03 AUDIO
    PERFORMER "Noval vs. Soldout"
    TITLE "Maybe Tomorrow"
    INDEX 01 10:17:20
  TRACK 04 AUDIO
    PERFORMER "Lolo"
    TITLE "Why ?"
    INDEX 01 15:54:10

On the other hand - when you want to import from a cuesheet that has less than four tracks, not every index will get changed. Let' s say you are importing from this cue:

  TRACK 01 AUDIO
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
  TRACK 02 AUDIO
    INDEX 01 04:23:00

So your main cuesheet will change like this:

  TRACK 01 AUDIO
    PERFORMER "Unit Response"
    TITLE "Teleport"
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
  TRACK 02 AUDIO
    PERFORMER "Automode"
    TITLE "The Battle For Saturnus"
    INDEX 01 04:23:00
  TRACK 03 AUDIO
    PERFORMER "Noval vs. Soldout"
    TITLE "Maybe Tomorrow"
    INDEX 01 12:12:20
  TRACK 04 AUDIO
    PERFORMER "Lolo"
    TITLE "Why ?"
    INDEX 01 19:16:20

 

Import  |  into current cue  |  Times from tracklist
reads the index values from a tracklist file and puts them in the cue that is currently being edited.

Note: Your tracklist import format has to contain at least minutes and seconds (frames are not compulsory). Otherwise this option is disabled.



Import  |  into current cue  |  Titles from cue
reads a cue file and puts performer and title fields in to the corresponding tracks.



Import  |  into current cue  |  Titles from tracklist
reads a tracklist file and puts performer and title fields in to the corresponding tracks.

Note: Every option that allows you to import into the current cue works in a similar way to importing times from cue described above - when you have the same number (or more) tracks in your import source, it changes all tracks in your cuesheet; when you have less tracks, the ones at the end are not modified.

 

 

Export
Saves a tracklist in the following format:

03. Oceanlab - Satellite (Markus Schulz Remix)
