Move in Black

Does the standard MIB time (S2 – Showoptions) change only for new cues? Right now I think it does. Could that be changed to globally change the times of MIB?

You are right - it is only for new cues. The data is written to the cue - not a pointer to a show variable with an over-ride (a la Show Cue List Options which are inherited by Cue Lists and can be over-riden option-by-option and cuelist-by-cuelist)

So, no global change once the cues are written. You can do range editing of the MIB time with the command line.

...except that you would need a:
WHERE mib = the OLD value, update to the new value.

The preferred solution would be to treat it in the same way as the properties of a cue list, and have a "use default" checkbox with the text input as a special for that cue only.

Is there any indicator of when MIBs are complete? Expecially when the MIB times are different?

If you have your ML window open, you see the Pan and Tilt values (or the positionlook names for pan and tilt) between tildes (~) as long as the lights are moving.

We have a high priority request in right now to show the text MARKING in the fourth bubble where it currently shows the number of cues running. I was hoping to get this into today's release, but I think we'll have to wait until next time. I know how VERY important it is as I myself have stepped on MIB fades and it always makes you look like the village idiot.

We released it to Strand today. Check their website for updates. I expect on Monday.

We didn't get the Marking text in the bubble :(
