We had this, but the syntax was so awkward that even I couldn't remember it (ever!). I believe we will work this in at some point. Thank You,

what about splitting inforations between the status area and the view key?
I mean in the status area you can see where the channel is used ,his last level or the last action on it,
and in the view popup added to the text infos, you could have other informations on the channel (on which dimmer it is patched,if it is a moving light is it inverted pan or tilt,things like that)
It would free space on the live status area and allows user to see quickly lots of info by pressing the view key.
That's the report key in the 500 series.

it's interesting to known what 's append in next cues, the best exemple is AVAB ; i can know in live witch Ch.up/down ,stay in next cues
in tracking or Qonly this is an ultra performante information just:" Ch. Enter": the level come from this Q thru this other Q and his colour,position
you can give directly this information at the lighte designer
i'ven't to go in Blind/track sheet
