How to remove a channel?
« on: October 25, 2011, 12:31:44 »

Hi! I am absolute beginner not only about milkytracker but trackers. Googled very thoroughly and didn't find the answer: how to remove a channel from a pattern?
I can only remove it's content (Ctrl+F3) but an empty,  unnecessary channel still clutters my screen...

You can't entirely remove a channel and unless it's one of the two rightmost channels, you can't even hide it. What I mean by hiding is that the Add and Sub buttons increase and decrease the number of a module's total channels two at a time but the notes and data on those channels are saved even when you "delete" them with Sub. Cleaning up a module is still a lot of manual work.

To help reorganize your channels to get rid of an empty one in the middle you can use the Shift-F3/F4/F5 clipboard but also the Alt one if you make your selections full pattern tall and one or several channels wide. There's also the Swap Channels command in the channel context menu which you can invoke by clicking the channel number or right-clicking/clicking-and-holding the channel. It lets you swap the places of the current channel (the one your keyboard cursor is on) and the channel you clicked.
