The Free-Format Touch Editors

In the Free-Format Editors you can use call events (not restricted to lead ends) entering call symbols (for Bobs, Singles, plain leads etc.) or use calling positions (eg. Wrong Home, 2(w h)) or in columns, the way you write them.   With the aid of named blocks, repeats and conditional insertions, Beltower can accommodate virtually every type of notation.   You can explicitly call Rounds and call That's All at hand or back strokes, including snap-leads, and even change conductor.   You can edit touches you have just rung and called, including mixed and spliced, and they can be listed and printed with all changes, lead heads, event, call or course heads or coursing orders.

The Free-Format Editors enable touch-specific X and Y calls, incl. in Calling Positions columns.   X is for existing events and Y at any other row.   They can include multiple changes, including jump changes and x in place notation and can be implemented as often as you like.  

Calling Positions

Screen Shot 1

  shows one of the Composer's compositions, for a 2020 date touch and the touch-specific Y call it created at row 29.   Also illustrated is a 579 of Plain Bob Minor composed for a 2019 touch, with an X call at a lead end.

Screen Shot 2

  shows the changes listing for a quarter peal of Stedman, using calling positions (identified by the blue text), and S, H, L and Q handled by insertion abbreviations, in a 5 part touch.   The positions basis and defined calls show Stedman, having part-lead calls, using event numbers.

Call Events (Lead Ends)

  using named blocks

Screen Shot 3

  shows call events mode, identified by the brown text.   This illustrates Grandsire Triples, using repeats with named blocks, and the lead heads listing.   If the 97 had been listed, coming round before the lead end, the next lead/event head would have been shown in brackets eg. (1325476).   The 224 is currently active, as the others have been commented out.   Comments can be added liberally.
