Best Macro option

HI Folks,

What is the bext procedure for a macro on the Classic Pallette 10.3.1?

For instance I have some cranky moving lights. I'm running a single cuelist. IF a Mover lamps off or a technobeam has it's pan tilt go bad and needs resetting I'd like to fire a macro that does reset and strobe closed for 3 seconds then releases. SHould I do that on a Sub bump button?

How do I make it so it doesn't affect the cuelist at all?

Thanks.

I would write a cue list that does auto follows and has a release of itself at the end. Then you could do a macro to fire that cue list and the process will continue until it's done and not disturb anything else.

At some point you will be able to fire macros with SHIFT #. Not sure where that is in beta process.

ok so how do I do this? I know nothing about macros on our board. or can a Sub Bump button just fire a cue list and release it?
