The Build Editor  

allows editing in Beltower's native code.

Screen Shot 1

  shows the Composer and Build Editor, for Spliced Minor, with a touch of Plain Bob Minor.   The listing shows the coursing order as it changes with each call, and it can also list lead heads, call heads or course heads.   This touch was composed in 3 parts, with a variation in 1 part, and repeated   ie. 6 part with a Single half-way and end.

Touch composer

The Composer

  will generate touches according to selected criteria, including the number of repeated parts, the conductor, and the methods and calls to be used.  

Screen Shot 1, above

, shows settings to find a 720 of Durham and York in 2 parts, repeated twice.   You can also select which of the defined calls are to be used, and whether part/half-lead calls should be included.   Also selected is the option to compose All Permutations, which will be displayed in the free-format call events editor.   You can, optionally, select one or more possible conductors, in Called From, one of whom's calling positions will be repeated by part, and there is also the option to keep All Callers Unaffected - useful at higher stages, to keep tenors together.  

Build View  

(

Screen Shot 2

)   shows Build View in the Multi-Method Touch Editor, although the free-format editor is recommended for all editing.   This shot illustrates the Call Heads listing (lead heads but with plain leads omitted), and 'Ring From' selection, to start ringing part way through.   This shows the cursor on Stedman with the defined calls indicated, the H at the end of plain bob to indicate a half-lead method change, and finally, the R 331 at the end of April Day to call it round early.

Multi-Method editor

If you select (highlight) a section of a touch, as shown, you will have the option to practise ringing starting part way through.
