  3. the second panel is for divided image modules (Pure Modules). Select "Free Divide" from the context menu of any images loaded in the first panel to open the Divide Image Pure Modules Dialog. You can create many rectangle image modules in this dialog.

Select "Create New Assembled Module" from the context menu of the third panel to create a new assembled module. Once an assembled module is created, select the "Edit ..." from its context menu to edit it.
  5. the fourth panel is for Sequenced Modules. A sequenced module is a composite of some other modules by time. Select "Create New Sequenced Module" from the context menu of the third panel to create a new sequenced module. Once a sequenced module is created, select the "Edit ..." from its context menu to edit it.

Note:

  • whole images, pure modules, assembled modules and sequenced modules are all Image Modules.
  • a sequenced module can't be used as a composite part of other modules.
  • an assembled module can't be used as a composite part of itself.
  • an assembled module A can't be used as a composite part of another module B if module B is already a composite part of module A.

To set a image module as the Current Image Module, do either:

  • click on it.
  • select "Set As Current Module" from its context menu.
