kgallen Posted May 16, 2018 Report Share Posted May 16, 2018 FLX I've been developing the fixture profile for a new light (Showtec Shark Wash One, see other posts). This means I read in my personal fixture library a number of times as I develop/debug it and Update the patched fixtures. Because I've started to set up palettes, e.g. position palettes, I've not wanted to unpatch the fixtures or use the "Clear User" option in reset. So I read in my fixture files from USB again. The result of this is that the desk has multiple definitions for the same named fixture. It's hard to know during fixture update which is my "new/updated" fixture profile because the Manufacturer->Fixture->Mode/Channels list has multiple entries for the same fixture, nothing to differentiate them other than order - last=newest? It also means that n-1 of them is a definition I no longer want, because the latest is the "greatest"! How can I manage this on the desk? Clearly at the mid-point of my process there will be the "old" fixture definition - currently patched and "used" in the showfile - and the updated one that I want to move to. At that point I want to get rid of the "old" one(s). This presumes I can identify which is the "old" and the "new" other than assuming the list has the newest at the bottom. Is there a way to work out which is which, or can the UI be enhanced to help? Can I purge "old" fixture definitions manually? Of course the desk holds lots of "unused" fixture definitions, so it's only the older duplicates that I want to get rid of. Sorry, that was probably clear as mud...
