Dials and Sliders

Dials and sliders can be unidirectional or bidirectional. Unidirectional values, for example, level values, start at a minimum value and go up to the maximum. Bidirectional controls start from the middle position and go to the left for negative and to the right for positive values.

Most of the editing methods are the same for dials and sliders.

  • To adjust a value, click a dial or a slider and drag up and down, or use the mouse wheel.

    If you press Alt when clicking a dial, a small slider appears, allowing you to set the parameter.

  • To make fine adjustments, press Shift and move the dial or use the mouse wheel.

  • To restore the default value for a parameter, press Ctrl/Cmd and click on the control.
