Control Mode may be entered from the Mode Menu, the Pop-up Menu or by using the Ctrl-G Keyboard Accelerator.
In Control Mode, the cursor becomes a hand or a hand with thumb and index finger when the mouse button is being held down. The user can gesture knobs, faders and push buttons with the mouse. Controls may also be changed by placing the cursor over a control and using Keyboard Type-in.
It is important to note that you can only gesture controls in control mode, and you can only do that if the view file has been compiled. If not compiled, no controls can be gestured, even if you are in control mode.
