Workshop

Review the questions and answers in this section to try to sharpen your DVDit! menu-creation skills. Also, take a few moments to tackle my short quiz and the exercises.

Q&A

Q1:I'm having trouble working with text in DVDit! I drag a font to a menu but when I type nothing happens. I click the word “Text” and start typing, and again nothing. What should I do?
A1: Click one more time. Changing the DVDit! text is a three-click process: one to select and place the text on the menu, another to put a frame around the text to change its shape and move it, and another to highlight the text for editing. When you're done typing, click outside the box to complete your work. Later, if you want to edit the text, it's another three-click process: one to create the frame, a second to highlight all the text, and a third to put a cursor within the text.
Q2:I create buttons and select all of them by Ctrl-clicking to change their shapes all at once, but when I click a center handle only that button changes shape. What's going on?
A2: You probably clicked a white center handle as opposed to a red handle. Even though all the buttons are highlighted with frames, only one will have a red center handle. This is a conscious design decision by Sonic that I think is counterintuitive. I think you should be able to click any handle on any button to change all their shapes at once. Nevertheless, if you want to use a center handle to change the buttons' shapes, select the button with the red center handle. One other possibility is that you did not click directly on the red center handle. Even if you missed it by a pixel, DVDit! thinks you're selecting the button, not grabbing its handle.
