Flasf + Solo

Whats the best way to set up a submaster bump button as Flash and Solo?
I have a couple of fixtures such as UV and Strobe that i would like the ability to overlay with my fader and solo with my bump button. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Record all channels, but the channel you want to flash, with a zero intensity. Now set the submaster to Assertive and you are done.

yes, but this will cause the fader to have the same function.

i'm looking to use the fader to control that fixture only, and the bump button as a flash and solo. as the 300/500 series would. should have perhaps mentioned this earlier.

so, this is what i figured, i would create a look on subpage 2 (or other) that is assertive as suggested above, on subpage 1 (or where fader requiring flash/solo lives) change the bump mode to action momentary and create a macro to bumplook (look created previously).
is this the easiest way to make flash and solo happen? or is there a better alternative?

Clever workaround. Should be simpler. Maybe adding an extra column for 'Bump Type':
I would propose the following modes for Bump Type:
- Flash
- Flash+solo
- Flash invert

And the additional mode for Bump Mode:
- Stop/Start Effect
