10.8.1 Printing

Post by gooze » Wed Sep 15, 2010 7:32 am

First of all: great additions to printing. This is a very nice way to archive a show.

A few remarks.
- printing A4, portrait mode. The filename patch doesn't show completely. If it is too long for one line, it should go on to the next line.

- In hardware setup it says 'Update when leaving Blind: NO" whereas my settings where "Immediate", also Level entry mode is set to "NO" instead of "Use [Enter] Key"
- Fixtures not used in cues could find it's place elsewhere in the software. Very nice. Bit complicated to do a printout just to check your unused fixtures :P
- It doesn't keep your settings, defaults to US letter and landscape. We are on A4 papersize. Could be automatically set if you choose for GeniusPro personality...
- Label in Cue list summary could be much longer. On of the main reasons to have a summary is to read to cuelabels. Landscape or portrait doesn't matter.

There are NO printouts optimized for Portrait.
So much information.
Always use Landscape for best results.

Always remove options that don't work from software! ;)

RE 10.8.1 Printing
I have also noticed that not all the cues seem to print. I certainly missed some out of my printout that had B & C parts, these cues did not appear at all. Also the VariLite group position showed up as "PB X1 :16000" or some such huge number, and the printout showed a different gobo to the one shown on the desk.
