Each chosen action is represented by a button bearing the name of the action and the object it refers to.
By applying more than one action, you will obtain a vertical list of buttons.
These can be shuffled around, so you can personalize the running order of sequence of the actions.
By default, the listed actions are performed one after the other. It is possible to perform them at the same time by dragging the action buttons close to one another and linking them.
