Group & Look Command Line Syntax

I've been running into issues when selecting multiple looks, groups & channels at the same time in the command line.

Selecting multiple Groups: [Group # + Group # + Group #] or [Group # thru #] works fine.
Selecting multiple Looks: [Look # + Look #] does not work, you cannot press [Look] after the plus. [Look # thru #] seems to work ok.

Groups and Looks also cannot be selected after an individual fixture.
ex: [1+2+3+Group] Translates into [1 Thru 3 Group]
ex: [1+2+3+Look] Translates into [1 Thru 3 Look]

Is this a bug or is there another way to do multiple selections? Thanks.

That's funny. I'm in China right now and I just had a user report that to me as well!
:duplicate: FS#1732 - multiple presses of LOOK on cmd line does not work

Thanks Robert, these have been on the list for quite some time. Any chance this will improve the related issue of S-key population for similar Group/Look syntax?

Not that I understand it, but the code guys say this is really hard to fix. I know it's 'just' code, but with the structure of the command line, apparently this one is a real nasty one.

Porting all your looks to groups should be easier then. Copy Look # trough # at Group # (through #).


But that's a different topic
