I have a bunch of non-dim CD80 modules and some running light dimmers that I keep in park groups and assign various profiles to. If I unpatch one of those dimmers from a fixture or delete the fixture it's patched to, the dimmer is removed from all park groups and reverts back to the default profile. Is this supposed to happen?

I hope so!
I really must not think of keeping track of possibly thousands of unpatched dimmers as well. They could be in every universe!

I would love to see some sort of Park display that would give you a list of what's in each park group, I think that could help. The issue I keep running into though is that I have to change the patch on a regular basis for touring shows, but the dimmer profiles & settings I'm using never change. It would be nice to be able to lock these settings in.

I agree. Very often you need these things on a fixture base and not on a dimmer base.
