MM offers you four ways to manually Seed or Manually Seed an Entry:
When you choose this method, you may Manually Seed entries for the 1st round ONLY; that is Prelims in a multi-round event or Finals for a Timed Final event.
Click on Athletes from the Main Menu then pick the Athlete and position the cursor on the Heat/Lane column under Entries in the appropriate row for the event. Now enter the Heat/Flight and Lane in which this Athlete is assigned to compete in the format Heat/Lane - for example, enter "4/5" for Heat 4 Lane 5.
Click on Relays from the Main Menu. Next pick the Relay Event and then the Relay Team Entry to Manually Seed. Now position the cursor on the Heat/Lane column under Relay Team Entries in the appropriate row. Now enter the Heat/Flight and Lane in which this Relay is assigned to compete in the format Heat/Lane - for example, enter "3/1" for Heat 3 Lane 1.
Click on Seeding then pick an Event then click on the Adjust/Preview Button. MM will display all heats/flights as currently configured. If there are no entries in any lanes/positions, then there will be one empty heat. If the event is an individual event and the eligible athletes are not showing at the bottom of the screen, click the "Show Eligible Athletes" button at the left. If the event is a relay event and the eligible teams/schools are not showing at the bottom of the screen, click the "Show Teams" button at the left. Click on an athlete or team name at the bottom of the screen and "drag" that Entry into any open lane/position. If the heats/flights are full, you can click on the Add Heat button to add another heat/flight. If the event is an individual event, you can also double click the empty lane and a pop-up window will appear where you pick from a list or start typing the last name and the list will scroll automatically to the best fit for the name.
Click on the Adjust Button, or press the F8 key, from the Run Screen. This takes you to the Adjust/Preview Menu as described in 2. above.
From the Run Screen, position your cursor in the field under the Competitor # column for the lane that you wish to Manually Seed the Athlete. Enter a competitor # that was previously setup for the Athletes. MM will Manually Seed this Athlete in the lane that you selected. You may navigate through the competitor numbers in this column using the Tab or Enter keys. If the Comp# column is not showing, go to Setup / Athlete Preferences and check "Enter Competitor Numbers". If the athletes do not have competitor numbers, go to the Athletes Menu and click the Comp# button at the left to automatically number all athletes.
