Nexus has always supported three standard timebar events: Foot Strike, Foot Off and General. You can now create and name your own custom events in the Nexus timebar.

To create custom events:

  1. Load the required trial and display a view that enables you to easily identify the action for which you want to create a custom event.  
  2. Enter event identification mode in your preferred way (either click the Enter event identification mode button or press CTRL+E).
  3. Lock the event context (Left, Right, or General) by pressing the UP or DOWN ARROW key and moving the mouse pointer to the required frame.
  4. Set a new event in the current context on the selected frame by pressing ENTER, and then clicking Create Custom Event.

  5. In the Create Custom Event dialog box, enter a name for your new event.
    The new custom event is indicated by '?' on the time bar.  
  6. Your custom event type is added to the event creation menu, so that you can quickly create other events of the same type.
