This enables you to choose the label placement method:
To create a chosen number of labels within the selection, selectfrom the dropdown (this is the default setting).
To place labels within the selection a chosen distance apart, selectfrom the dropdown then enter that distance in Label interval (seconds).
Number of labels
If you selected(the default) then your specified number of labels (default is 10) will be created. The number can be changed by typing in the input box, the allowed range is between 2 and 1000 labels.
If you selectedthen the labels will be placed at your specified interval within the selected audio. The default interval is 60.0 seconds. The allowed range is between 0.001 and 3600 seconds.
Adjust label interval to fit length
This only operates if you have chosen the Label interval placement method.
If you selectfrom the dropdown for this control, it adjusts your chosen label interval if necessary to make all the audio segments of equal length, including the final segment between the last label and the end of the selection.
When set to, the interval between labels will be exactly the length specified in the Label interval control, but the final segment from the last label to the end of the selection may be different (depending on whether the selection length is exactly divisible by the specified interval duration.
When is selected, the label interval will always be the length of the selection divided by the number of labels, irrespective of this setting.
The default setting for this control is.
The text that will be included in each label. The default setting is Label but this can be replaced by any text (or no text) by using the input box.
Minimum number of digits in label
Choose the minimum number of number of digits in the label numbers and whether the number is placed before or after the label text. The default setting is. With that setting, if you had 10 labels with "Label" as the label text, the first label would be "01Label", the next "02Label" and the last would be "10Label".
If you selectthen no numbering will be applied to the labels. If you choose this and set no label text then you will produce a set of empty labels.
