Atribute Bubbles stick to previous Fixture Attributes

Post by IvanMunro » Thu Jan 07, 2010 9:18 am

On our Vl light (Sw v10.6.2) we seem to have the following problem:

-a fixture with an atribute is selected, ( for instance LDDE spectraconnects on Channel 260 )
in the Bubbles you get the attribute controls [ Colour mode | R | G | B ]

-when selecting an other fixture with a different attribute (for instance a conventional with scroller Channel on 1)
the bubbles get cleared but do not get set to the correct attribute:
Channel on is selected (red square and delta and all..)
Bubbles: [ Colour mode | R | G | B ] but no actual values set in the bubbles
only when we use the colour button (above Live) we get the correct attribute Bubbles: [ empty | colourframe | empty | empty ] with live value.

When programing this a tad anoying as you amlways have to remember to hit colour after selecting the fixture.

I wonder if this a known issue or maybe we have an incorrect setting somewhere?

Known and I believe (and hope) fixed in 10.6.3 which Strand is about to release any day now. Maybe some beta testers and verify what I've said.

FYI - I love Eddie Izzard (is that what your avatar is about?) :lol:
