Hightlight Active sub/look page

Post by TaineGilliam » Tue Apr 15, 2008 7:00 pm

In the Look Page List can we please highlight the Look Page that is currently active on the sub handles? This will make it much easier to be clear which page is active when the virtual submaster are not displayed. If we ever get to the point where a different Look Page is possible for each bank of submasters or where the virtual submasters don't need to be the same as the hardware submasters this will be vital.

Here is an idea...

On the LOOK page, the top left window shows the LOOK pages - what if these were background coloured the same as the colour used for an ACTIVE CUE in the cuelist?

Then if you implement having different fader panels OR specific faders work from different Look pages, ALL of the active LOOK PAGES would be highlighted, and within that page, the active Looks are likewise highlighted.

Simple.
...and for more entertainment industry trivia and useless facts, just ask:

Heck, it could even be a separate column in the Look Page Directory - "Bank" which would be empty, or have a number/letter for which bank the page was active on.
