Clue editor
The clue editor allows you to define / modify a clue.
A clue can be defined / modified by changing the following settings:
The General panel defines the most important settings of a clue.
Variable 
Description 
Parameter 
Parameter 
Requirements 
Description 
Displacement 
1 point 
Displacement of a single
point 
Position 
1 point 
Position of a single
point 
Velocity 
1 point 
Speed of a single
point 
Acceleration 
1 point 
Acceleration of a single
point 
Projection angle 
1 point 
Projection angle of a single
point 
Distance 
1 segment, or
2 points 
Distance between two
points. 
Angle 
2 segments, or
4 points, or
1 segment and 2 points, or
1 segment and a reference vector, or
2 points and a reference vector 
Angle between two segments. 
Angular velocity 
2 segments, or
4 points, or
1 segment and 2 points, or
1 segment and a reference vector, or
2 points and a reference vector 
Angular velocity between two
segments. 
Angular acceleration 
2 segments, or
4 points, or
1 segment and 2 points, or
1 segment and a reference vector, or
2 points and a reference vector 
Angular acceleration between two
segments. 

Component 

Points 
1  4 points 
Segments 
1 or 2 segments 
Reference vectors 
Reference vector and an optional
look at vector 
The Segments panel allows you to change the definition of the
segment(s).
When you select a parameter that requires two or more points (distance,
angle, angular velocity, or
angular acceleration), the segment panel becomes active.
 Select a segment: the start point and end
point of the segment are the
two points defining the
segment;
 Select the two points
manually. A segment can be defined between any two
points.
The Reference vectors panel allows you to define
reference vectors
(rather than a second segment). Angular parameters (angle, angular velocity, and angular acceleration) can be
defined in two possible ways:
 The angle between a segment
(through two points) and
another segment (also through two
points), or
 The angle between a segment
(through two points) and a
reference vector.
The following two vectors can be edited using a
vector editor:
The Hints panel allow you to determine how a clue is visualized in a chart, renderer, or
view
editor.
