Dimmer channels on encoder

We should have the possibility to move plain dimmer channel's intensity on an encoder wheel. Seems to be not implemented.

Yes. That has come up in conversation and is on the list to be implemented.

I think that would be a nice addition to the console.

seems that there was a feature implemented that I was not aware of so I'm not sure what version of software this is available. It may only be in beta.

Once the channels are selected, SHIFT ENTER will give you Relative intensity on Encoder A. See if it's there for you.

It seems the shift+enter works fine as an intensity wheel for dimmers.
thank you.

Good. I'm glad it's working for you.

On a similar note - is there a way to get an Output on the wheel or an encoder? Think 520 Dimmer button...

Not sure. Will have to think about this. Maybe in Patch.

As a slight extension to this suggestion, put the neighboring channels on the encoders too. For example, select channel 8 and it appears on encoder 'B' then have 7 on encoder 'A' and 9 and 10 on encoders 'C' and 'D' respectively. Then to take this a step further, make S5 and S10 forward and back buttons so you can jump through blocks of channels.

Interesting idea. I like it. There are quite a few other things that I want to get done first but I'll look at it.
