Everybody knows that VT-Edit is the fastest editor in the world,* but it can also make your life easier during your live shoots. How?
A nice, easy-to-view stillstore window!

How to better view your CG pages live:
Go to Storyboard view
click on that Storyboard tab to make it a single window
Drag in all your lower thirds and title pages
Click on the 'Track Clip' option just above the jog/shuttle controls at the bottom
On your switcher, select VT-Edit as your DSK source
Fade DSK up


Now, because track clip is active, a single-click on anything in this easy-to-view window will send it to air, and you don't have to worry about selecting the wrong clip if you suddenly need to jump out of sequence for playback.
