Links are great for cue sequences that can be reliably run in the exact same way every performance. If you find that a link is too rigid (for example, you need to run two cues, timed such that the second cue runs right after an actor says a specific line), a cue link might be too rigid, because the timing of the actor’s line is unpredictable from night to night. In these instances, you should keep the cues independent or use Pile On Cues. Pile On Cues are just cues that are loaded manually, and at your own discretion, before the previous cue completes. Since Pile On cues are just cues, we do not label it differently in Spikemark.
