It would be nice to create some kind of macro on presets like a timed preset:
for example to dim a spot from 100% to 0% in 5 seconds using only a preset.
If it's already possible i'd be glad to know how!

Hello, everyone
my question
Can I display unused cues?
I created some for testing - but they are no longer used. Just don't find them all - I did something wrong with the labeling

thank you for your answer

I modified a tracked cue and wanted to save it as a blocking cue to be independent from the tracking, so I wanted to change the recording selection (RECORD and then change from "programmer content" to "All"). As soon as I pressed on the recording selection on the screen, the GUI rebooted.

On the last show I did, I had to change an existing cue, because I had to modify the position of some moving heads an recognized an unwanted behaviour.

When I loaded the cue to the programm with LOAD + selecting the cue, I saw that also the Pan/Tilt Speed (PT Speed) parameter was highlited in RED in the programmer. This also happens to other parameters (e.g. the shutter parameter when you are in the dimmer attribute section). It seems, that always the 3rd parameter of an attribute page is also put to the programmer as a changed value.

On live events fast(er) switching between playback pages would be a great option.

Idea1:  (Short implementation time)
Add a checkbox or dropdown menu in the "Shift+Playback page" window with the option to open this window by default when pressing the "playback page key" instead of stepping through the playback pages. 
Pressing shift and the button is taking quite some time during live performance. (And there is quite a big risk hitting another button than SHIFT).

Idea2: (More implementation time needed?)
Add the possibility to assign "Playback page+" and "Playback-" to hardkeys.

Type of the Desk: Brand new Lampy 20 2U

Software Version: V1.04

External Display Connected, is a touchscreen?: Yes, Yes

Connected USB Devices: Touch screen, Mouse

Networked Devices: None

Magic sheet empty after pressing cancel button in arrange new fixtures window

Steps to reproduce:
- Have some fixtures in your show
- Go to the patch window
- Add fixtures from factory lib.
- Search for Infinity Iw-740 RDM 28ch
- Press OK
- Fixture count = 12
- Autopatch on universe 2
- Patch
- Arrange Linear
- Sheet #1
- In arrange new Fixtures window press CANCEL
- All fixtures are removed from sheet #1
- Sheet 1 is showing : This Magic Sheet is empty

This is a frustrating bug since your whole show may be impacted by adding a couple of fixtures.
I didn't find a way to get the sheet back

Expected Behavior:
Do not change anything to my existing show

Observed Behavior:
Clearing the sheet.

I worked much on other consoles before, often MA. Chimp is cool, but there is one major issue that has to be solved. On other consoles you can generate effects on a medium speed. Later during, the schow, the middle position of the effect speed master is the speed thas was programmed. Abowe medium position, the effect is faster under medium slower. With chimp, the effect speet master can just do 100%, this means, the speed that was recorded. This is not cool. It would be very good if the effect speed could be rised to 200% or more. In addition to this, I miss a tab function for the effect speed. At least it would be helpful if there would be an option to choose if effect speet is at 100% if fader is at 100% or speed is at 100% if fader is at 50%. 
I spoke with some MA users that tryed Chimp. They all said that this is one of the issues that is not acceptable. Often, you can not now how fast you need you effect later during the show. So you have to be able to rise it above 100% if necessary. Chimp restricts the 100% of recorded speed and takes all the necessary flexibility.
However as I said, Chimp is cool an well done. I like to work with it. I hope that the restrictions/problems will be solved with future updates. I think, this console is able to take a big part of the marked if it will be further developped. This issue is just one of ten that I saw, but I think solvable. I ll do separate posts for the other improvements that can be done. For example universe restrictions, this is a NO-GO. In times of fixures with pixel control (this takes many adresses), it can not be possible that a console just gives out two universes. At least 4 physical and 8 via artnet should be minimum standard for all series. But other subject Wink

Best Regards

Type of the Desk: onPC

Software Version: 2.10

External Display Connected, is a touchscreen?: Yes

Connected USB Devices: USB Stick

Networked Devices: -

Locked Console can be partially unlocked via connecting as a Backup Console (and fully accessed by the Backup Console for this matter)

Steps to reproduce:
1. Lock Console
2. On the "Backup"-Console connect to Master Console

Expected Behavior:
The Master Console should still be locked and it would be a good idea to deny the connection from the backup console if the master is locked and probably to also implement another security measure (maybe a confirmation at master console or a passphrase) to make it harder to steal a show file or crash a show.

Observed Behavior:
The view before the locking is accessible and can be used, but the buttons to change the view/faders/executers are disabled. Also the Hardware Inputs seem to be disabled, except for the touch input.
