trackback selective update

Post by TaineGilliam » Mon Sep 29, 2008 4:21 pm

I understand how to do various parts of this but not all together.

I know I can get a trackback update from the Update dialog. This is also the only place to get smart palette updates, I believe.

I know I can do a selective update from the command line - {channel list} [Update]...

Is there a means to do the selective update AND trackback? Shift update doesn't seem o open the dialog if there is a leading channel list and I can't find a trackback softkey.

A wish item this points out is adding a channel list to the Update dialog for cases of multiple trackback options:
Cue List 1 Cue 5 (current cue)
Cue List 1 Cue 2 (track back cue)[3+5/7]
Cue List 1 Cue 3 (track back cue)[12/13]

You are correct. There is currently no method. Ideas noted.

Now would be the moment to finally take the bull by the horns and do your magic update trickery isn't it?
