  • The original Rudolph did not have a red nose. In that day and age, red noses were seen as an indicator of chronic alcoholism and Montgomery Ward didn’t want him to look like a drunkard. To complete the original picture, he was almost named Reginald or Rollo.
  • The Christmas wreath was originally hung as a symbol of Jesus. The holly represents his crown of thorns and the red berries the blood he shed.
  • The three traditional colors of most Christmas decorations are red, green and gold. Red symbolizes the blood of Christ, green symbolized life and rebirth, and gold represents light, royalty and wealth.
  • Tinsel was invented in 1610 in Germany and was once made of real silver.
  • The oldest artificial Christmas trees date back to the late 1800s and were made of green raffia (think grass hula skirts) or dyed goose feathers. Next the Addis Brush Company used their machinery that wove toilet brushes to create pine-like branches for artificial Christmas trees that were less flammable and could hold heavier decorations.
  • ‘Jingle Bells’ – the popular Christmas song was composed by James Pierpont in Massachusetts, America. It was, however, written for thanksgiving and not Christmas.
  • Coca-Cola was the first company that used Santa Claus during the winter season for promotion.
  • Hallmark introduced their first Christmas cards in 1915.
  • The first recorded date of Christmas being celebrated on December 25th was in 336, during the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine. A few years later, Pope Julius I officially declared that the birth of Jesus would be celebrated on that day.
  • Santa Claus's sleigh is led by eight reindeer: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Dunder (variously spelled Donder and Donner), and Blixem (variously spelled Blixen and Blitzen), with Rudolph being a 20th-century inclusion.
  • Outdoor Christmas lights on homes evolved from decorating the traditional Christmas tree and house with candles during the Christmas season. Lighting the tree with small candles dates back to the 17th century and originated in Germany before spreading to Eastern Europe.
  • That big, jolly man in the red suit with a white beard didn’t always look that way. Prior to 1931, Santa was depicted as everything from a tall gaunt man to a spooky-looking elf. He has donned a bishop's robe and a Norse huntsman's animal skin. When Civil War cartoonist Thomas Nast drew Santa Claus for Harper's Weekly in 1862, Santa was a small elflike figure who supported the Union. Nast continued to draw Santa for 30 years, changing the color of his coat from tan to the red he’s known for today.
  • Christmas 2018 countdown has already begun. Will you be ready???
  • Why do we love Christmas? It's all about the traditions. In this chaotic world we can miss the "good old days." Christmas reminds us of that time.

Click on play and you will get a drop down menu click play range and select the one you want. IE: from selection, to selection etc. You can also select visible screen to just play what you see.

Typically, I use the space bar to start and stop the animation while using the visualizer. I used to set the play range but that was a pain in the back side. To start, open up the visualizer, then click back on to the part of the sequence you want to see. Then simply press the space bar to watch and listen. When you're done watching, press the space bar again. I then usually close out of the visualizer and fix/adjust the sequence to my liking. I repeat this over and over... Fastest way for me.

Thats the way I do it too. Works good for me.

Some of the best help I found while learning S2 was the Help index, where you could search for a topic or just browse and read about what all of the buttons and menus do.

As for your question, relxerd already beat me to it, but the space bar also acts as as a play/pause (it works on just about anything on your computer that has play/pause buttons, including youtube). To start playing from an exact spot, you can simply click on that spot in your sequence (so that a cell is selected) and then hit the space bar. ----Be careful that you don't accidentally insert an on/off/twinkle/etc. command though----to avoid this I usually click on a blank cell, hit delete in case I inserted any command into that cell, and then hit the space bar to begin playing from that spot. Hit space bar again to stop.

Another method that I later found and started using quite a bit was to start it playing and for the "range" that I wanted to keep going through, hit the up arrow (I believe it's the up arrow) at the beginning of the range and the down arrow? (I think) at the end of the range. That will make that range turn grey, so that if you press play, it will play only that range. If you have selected "loop at end" then it will continuously play that small section - convenient when you're working on marking the timings on a piece.

I do highly recommend the help section of the LOR software though - I really started enjoying sequencing more and more once I started figuring out all the time I could save by using the built in functions with all the buttons and menu options.

As for loops - what I read told me that loops can only be used in an animation sequence - not a musical sequence. When a sequence if first created, there is a check box to allow loops, but again, I think this option is only available for non musical sequences. The way around this is to create a new animation sequence, create the loop, and then copy and paste the cells into your musical sequence.
