UPDATE Softkeys

Post by gooze » Wed Oct 28, 2015 7:45 am

Maybe it is far from possible anymore this close to the final curtain of the palette software... But I try anyway!

Would it be very difficult to make the ALT softkeys 1 through 4 for the Update function into radio buttons? That means that if you choose to update palettes then cue, you choose once and for the remainder of the day you'd only need to press [UPDATE][UPDATE]. This would save me soooo many keystrokes and cues where the pallettes by accident turn into hard values :( .

Same with the other three Update options. If you want to back to normal update, you press the highlighted SK once more, to unselect it.

Interesting idea. I've asked the software engineer to take a look.

I would love this!
But instead of ALT soft keys I would prefer the way CUELIST SCROLL LOCK works.
Once you select a behavior, it stays highlighted in yellow.
If you want to change, you highlight another softkey in yellow.
In fact not a real radio mode because you would have the possibility to let all sofkeys not in yellow.
