Next / Last within Selection

Post by TaineGilliam » Fri Apr 15, 2011 11:23 am

This may have been discussed before but it would be very handy to be able to use Next / Last to move between fixtures in a selection especially with the highlight tool.

This would make for a very fast means of tweaking the members of groups. You could select the group. And then using Next / Last adjust each fixture individually? Combine this with making the Highlight Tool cooperate and only highlight the individual fixture...

The operation of the Next and Last keys need not change when there is either no selection, only a single channel selected or following a "+" or "/".

Possibly a Shift+Next or Shift+Last?

Shift Last is a real trick on the OLE - Shift Shift Tab ???

I really don't see the need for a new keystroke just a refinement of the operation of the one we have.
