Hi all,

I am trying to find a way to lock an ETC eos file so that none of the programming can be altered. I have a SM that is convinced they know what they are doing on the desk but in preshow checks they have managed to alter my fade times twice already.

Is there a way or is it a macro I have to write for it?

Any help or advice much appreciated!

There is no way to lock the file. There is also no reason to lock it. Eos saves a new version of the file instead of overwriting the existing file. Load an earlier version if somebody makes an unwanted change.

As thought, I have seen this request countless times in assorted forums and will suggest to ETC that they offer a change to the Shift +Escape keystroke to allow a Record Lock function. Seems a LOT of schools, where people don't know better, deal with this issue all the time.

Not unknown for houses that are union to let whomever run console, long as there’s a union member alongside or in the Booth. As long as it’s not putting somebody out of work is the concept.
