About the First Marker Button in a Chapter Index Menu

DVD Studio Pro automatically adds the first marker to all tracks. It is named “Start” when
the track is created by dragging a video asset to the Menu Editor. (When the asset is
dragged to the Track Editor, the name is based on the marker naming settings in the
Track pane of DVD Studio Pro Preferences.) When you create a chapter index menu, the
first button linked to a marker is linked to the “Start” marker set by DVD Studio Pro.

Because this marker is at the start of the track, pressing this button plays the track from
its beginning. If the marker names appear on your chapter index menu’s buttons, you
may want to edit this button’s text to better describe its function.
