    Hi controlbooth community! This is a basic question, but how do I change the color of lights with the color picker. I found a few solutions; (ML controls, Add-a-Tab (the {+} sign) and select the Color Picker) please let me know what I should do. (The console is the ETC Element 60 500 (Eos Family))

    NARROW QUESTION: how do I get to this step?? ---> Add-a-Tab (the {+} sign) and select the Color Picker

    Hi! I hope this answers your question:

    From any display, you can see the tabs on that display listed above the command line. You can add the color picker tab by clicking on the plus button to the right of all of your tabs. Then, you can select color picker from the options (its in the middle of the third row).

    There are two ways (well three) to access the colour picker.

    1) You can open a new WORKSPACE (the 1, 2 & 3 buttons top left of the screens) which you can configure differently. Press the FRAMES CONFIGURE button (beside the WORKSPACE, a monitor with hashed lines intersecting in the middle) to lay out how you would like. Then for each frame at the bottom there are TABS, press the ADD TAB button (the plus sign).
    Select Color Picker

    2) Instead of selecting color picker you can select ML CONTROLS which contains the color picker and all other intelligent light controls

    3) Press the ML CONTROLS button on the top of the element keyboard. This will open ML controls in the BROWSER pop-up menu. (Used for About, Browser & ML Controls)

    I think @Dionysus gives pretty good instructions. I'll go a step further and say that I've locked my ML controls to a frame so that I never have to hit the ML button again.
