Since we have this button doing both UNDO functionality and RELEASE functionality there is an argument for doing both but I think most folks want it to RELEASE. Essentially go back to recorded value. In the case where you haven't recorded anything yet, you would probably want it to UNDO.

I see the problem. I was just wondering if it would be possible to release or undo a certain attribute back to the way it was in the cue your in, but only that attribute

Since we have the functionality of UNDO and RELEASE on the same key, what about the same thing for attributes.

UNDO COLOR ENTER would allow the color to go back to the previous selected but RELEASE COLOR would allow it to go back to what is stored. Basically to the cue or look.

Similar to the Hog 2.
UNDO COLOUR, UNDO BEAM, etc.
Very handy.

Essentially did the same as our TWIDDLE RELEASE,
but not quite as specific.

Sounds good. But how would you tell one button whether its going to release or undo? unless you have M keys or something

Robert,

Any update on the UNDO for wheel or color picker changes?
