Compose editor for osu! in Windowed mode

The beatmap editor is osu!'s in-game graphical interface for creating beatmaps. It is separated into four modes:

  • Compose: This is where Hit Objects are placed and edited. Most of the time spent in the editor is done here.
  • Design: This is where the Storyboard is made, most mappers will only use the "Background Image/Video" button here.
  • Timing: This is where the song's BPM and offset are entered. This window also control hitsounds if they aren't constant throughout the map.
  • Song Setup: This is where various options regarding the map are set. This includes combo colors and difficulty settings.
