Any blocks of text or staves that EscapeE detects will be shown enclosed within coloured boxes. Each box denotes a clip region and may labeled with a number or letter on the right.

Size, position, labels and number of Parts can be edited here, either now or later by re-opening this page-editor: see Editing a composite document file.

In this example there are six pages containing systems of four Parts, numbered 1 to 4, for extraction. Note the double-headed arrow icon over a red box edge: this demonstrates the mouse being dragged to move that box's boundary. Further editing functions may be accessed from a pop-up menu: hover the mouse over a box and right click.
