When clicking on the "Edit" on a sound file in the soundboard (EZB) control, you will now see is a visual waveform spectrum of the audio file. There are also some extra control options...

Play: Plays the audio file

Stop: Stops audio file playback

Edit Script: Opens up the script editor.

Delete: Deletes the script.

Close: Closes the menu.

You will also see a small clock in the top left of the waveform window which will change when you drag your mouse pointer over it. There is another black clock which gives you a run time of the audio file when played a "Starts at" clock which tells you at what point a script will run, and a dialog box which displays your added scripts.

There are further options which are used for modifying script and audio file behavior which are found by moving the mouse pointer to a position on the waveform, then right clicking on the for the option list for this position.
