Fixture info

One of our staff had a suggestion that when you right click on a fixture, you can have other options then just the "Fixture Title". One of these options would be for fixture info that could open up a dialog box (or something) that would show information about that fixture. This information could include the fixture type, outputs that are patched to it, profiles that are applied to it, and it's current state.

And may be:
In what Cues, Looks, Groups the fixture will be stored with the intensities. You know, sometimes you only "tick" a fixture and the you store it with a small intensity (like 3%) but in reality you don´t use it.
So we have a chance to found "unused" fixtures. Sorry for say that but the ETC EON has this feature and this is really helpfull for the operator if the LD don´t "think".
May be like the 500 with: FixtureNr and then [help]

Yes. Maybe it shows you what cuelists the fixture is used in, and allows you to quickly jump to the track sheet for that cuelist, and highlight that fixture.

We've been wanting to sex up the Fixture dialog box a lot to include (and allow editing of) the patch. Also, highest and lowest level, first cue used in selected cue list, # used etc.

/sigh/...

Need more monkeys at more keyboards.

Need to sell more consoles to pay for more monkeys at more keyboards.

Need new features to promote the sale of more consoles so that we can get more features.

...and the cycle of life continues...
