Moving informational columns in windows

Post by sirsparky » Tue Mar 25, 2008 1:57 pm

I like how you can move columns around in the cue list window and channel the order in which data is being displayed. Why can I not do that with looking in other similar windows, like in pitch or moving light status, etc...

No good reason in Patch. In the ML Attribute grid we're sticky about having ColA next to ColB and ColC (and shutters and the like). That's the main reason. If we could move both Pan and Tilt together and keep them together it would be a different story, but right now that is just too hard to do.

I did a similar request in an earlier topic in the beta section.

The columns are sortable by clicking on the columnheads. Clicking the second time will togle between sorting ascending and descending.
You can sort by output, channel, type, settings (profile, etc.) and a new column: label.

This new column also could bring in new functionality: Autosub and autolabel.
Autosub takes all the channels with the same label and puts them in a submaster.
Autolabel takes all the channels from a submaster and gives them the label of the submaster in patch.
That would give a good reason to have movable columns in patch.
