kgallen Posted January 1, 2020 Report Share Posted January 1, 2020 Add Selected Fixtures button to Update Options Undo/Redo - even one level would be handy, to restore e.g. a lost position or colour. Simplify/unify GUI behaviour recording (effects) palettes when using Record Options to include I/C/B/P. Improve clarity of messaging by including detail of what is being operated on - for example "Delete Palette <name>?" rather than "Delete Palette 17?" - this example particularly, as the Delete confirmation blanks out the entire screen with this one line message plus ok/cancel buttons - so you (a) have to remember what Palette 17 was (b) know that this was the Palette you intended to delete. Undo would also be useful here. Some means to clarify (maybe documentation) which USB port is "Removable Drive [AB][1-3]" - when multiple USB sticks are inserted, which is which? Usable scrollbars. Usable mouse scroll wheel. Speed/accelerate adjust for mouse move. Preview waveforms in the Effects Waveform editor - to show relative alignment of waveforms - e.g. "Trapezoid" with a 33 offset to "Step 1/4" with a 50 offset. For example I had a requirement to do a green-yellow-cyan colour fade and working out which modulators to use and what the offsets should be needs some head scratching and a pen and paper. More predefined/library effects. The new ones in 7.9.6 are good but the library needs to expand a lot to give quick access to prebuilt effects. More complete/detailed user manual. On FLX plenty of functions/buttons are either not described at all or are given scant description. The documentation needs to be much more complete. I know you're not trying to "teach lighting" but what the heck does "Ballyhoo" actually mean? (and I've been doing stage lighting for 23 years). Effects needs more detail on the base modulators. For example "Trapezoid" - what are the relative dimensions of this geometric figure - is it "in 6 sections" and a 0 offset it's low:up:high:high:down:low so if I offset at 50 then I'm in the middle of the two periods of high?
