Nice selection trick

If you have position palettes for moving lights, but not all positions are populated by all movers, you can easily select those that are in the palette, by pressing [SHIFT] while picking the position on your 5x5 Tool or console keys.

And [Select] [Blue] [Red] is also handy. Takes all live Blue lights and makes them red.

Love the trick Robert. Two things -

1) If TOOLS didn't cancel SELECT we could get to this without a 5x5.

2) Making SELECT S5-Using Palette was sticky for the look page would be nice.
