Selected fixtures in edit mode...


Forgive me if there is already a fix for this but:


Context: Editing a cue within a cue list and after switching to the palette tab to perform changes



I find that all the fixtures active in the scene are NOT shown as selected in the "groups" tab but in fact are if you switch over to the "fixture" tab.


So far my fix has been to select and deselect each groups once more to truly reflect what you first saw... Sometimes it doesn't work and I switch over to the Fixtures tab to manually perform the de-selection of each fixtures...


The Problem:

It is very time consuming! My show involved controlling movers on top of the venue's 144 dimmers.... I spend more time selecting and deselecting fixtures than I do making changes,


Any suggestions on a more efficient workaround? (without deleting the cue and restarting from scratch?)

  • I’m new to the Lightshark system usually I work with Martin/Onyx and Hog consoles. I’m working with a LS-Core on a project and have had issues with cue lists disappearing. The first four I made reappeared when I opened the show after saving, however any cue list I made after and tried to save would show up in the cue list veiw but not on the playback fader it was recorded on. Also while you can see the cue list in the cue list veiw , you can’t select it. Is there something I am missing?
  • I edited a previously created fixture via the fixture editor to include ranges, clicked "Save" (save confirmed). The new range-names will not display on the slider. I tried to re-patch the fixture, but the "Patched" window will not let me delete the existing fixture! Other fixtures in the list, including custom ones, I can delete. What's going on here?
  • Any time I delete a cue list, it leaves an empty unfillable spot. The only fix is to create a new show and start over. Now I have to make sure I only create cue lists that I want. This is a big hassle since much of the programming experience is learned through experimenting with creating, moving and deleting cues and lists.
