The parameter spreadsheet shows a flat list of rows representing nodes in the network, and columns representing the flags and parameters (and parameter components) of each node.
You can press on a row heading to show a sub-set of that node’s context menu. Press on a column heading to show options for the column, such as sorting.

The pattern in the Parm mask matches the channel name of the parameter, not the human-readable label from the parameter editor.
To see the channel name of a parameter or parameter component, hold the mouse pointer over the parameter in the parameter editor. A tooltip will appear showing the channel name.
Because the Parm mask matches by name, the same pattern can match different parameters on different nodes. Some cells may be empty because the parameter in a column might exist on some nodes but not others.
Use the parmsheet command to control the options of a parameter spreadsheet pane in HScript.
You can drag and drop a take from the Take List into the Parameter Spreadsheet to set the parm mask on the spreadsheet. This will let you quickly isolate the parms enabled in a given take and present them to you in a convenient, spreadsheet-like fashion for editing.
A node I want does not appear in the spreadsheet.
The node path does not match the pattern in Op mask.
Check the pattern in the Op mask field. See “how to populate the spreadsheet” above for how to add a node to the spreadsheet.
I can't edit a cell.
Possible causes and solutions:
That parameter does not exist on that node.
Cells at the intersection of a parameter (column) that does not exist on a given node (row) are empty. You cannot edit these cells.
The parameter is locked.
If the field’s background color is pink, the parameter is locked. You can press on the parameter’s name in the parameter editor and choose Unlock to unlock it.
The parameter is not included in the current take.
If the field has a dark background color (the same color as empty space in the pane), the parameter is not in the current take. You can press on the parameter’s name in the parameter editor and choose Include In Take to include it in the current take.
