I've never done this before so any help would be greatly...

    Ion dumps cues unexpectedly

    Just had the whackiest thing happen to an LD on a show I'm working on. We just finished the Act 1 tech, and he went merrily along writing cues in the 100 and 200 number series for the first half. Played a few of them back along the way with Goto Cue, and everything worked just exactly like it...

    Control/Dimming Ion ghost inputs

    Having a weird issue with one of our Ions. It just started to randomly input values / commands and ignore others. I can see that a channel is put in the command line but then the last digit will be cleared as if someone hit backspace. Sometimes the command line is completed without hitting...

    Dynamic Cues?

    I'm guessing this is a really stupid question because I'm sure there is some really easy way to do this and I just can't think of it, but I'm wondering if there is a way to create a look, and use it several times throughout a show, but if I change that look, it will update in every place that...
