Short description of error
This is NOT A BUG, just unable to locate the function and hence the following question:

Came across this line "Show Separate Color Channels" in the vi.po file and intended to investigate exactly what it supposed to do. I tried to load a wave file into the editor and turned on the waveform, as shown in the following image:

This matches exactly what's shown in the source code:

Researched a bit as 'who done that' and found the following:

Contacted William Raynish and could only get this answer:

Can someone please tell me how to turn on this function (in the menu) and what exactly what it means (how can waveform includes color channels?).

Why do you close this task and marked as Invalid without answering my question?

I can offer two more images:

  1. I loaded a clip with a movie and turned on the Waveform Display to ON:

  1. Approached the 'View' menu and was unable to see the menu option for "Show Separate Color Channels":

If the function is not yet WORKING then don't submit the code, or else texts will confuse us translators, especially no technical documentations are available.

As I already answered, it’s related to scopes. I didn’t add the feature. But please don’t add bug report tickets in order to ask a question.

Message to William Reynish:

I emailed you personally (via Gmail and tweeter) asking first, didn't I? And I did say "This is NOT A BUG, just unable to locate the function and hence the following question:". Because I could not get the proper answer and that's why I have to resort to this BUG/TASK database. I DID NOT raise a BUG. This is my tweet's comments:

If you don't understand the feature then at least you can consult one(s) who scheduled those changes to you and ask them for the TRUE meanings, then communicate those meanings to me. If you DON'T understand then you could say: "I'm scheduled to do those changes, but I will consult (so-and-so) and come back to you for the actual meanings of the function". That would stop me having to raise this TASK.

Thank you Yevgeny Makarov for the image. I just tried it and got the following image:
