    Have you installed the profile or do you have it on a disk?

    With the profile in the fixture library, all you have to do is go to the patch screen and press: XXX[@]YYY{@FIXT}ZZZ[*] where XXX is the DMX start address of the fixture, YYY is the channel you want it at, and ZZZ is the fixture profile number.

    If you have not installed the profile, let me know I can help with that too.

    I don't know what number the fixture profile is under. . . is there a way to bring up the library? or find out what the different fixtures profile numbers are?
    thanks

    You can bring up the fixture library in the notes viewer. [MORE]{NOTES}. Then there should be a softkey that is something like open or load file, and then you will see an option for FIXT LIB. Open that and scroll through it until you find the fixture you are looking for. It's number will be in []. Then go back to patch and patch as I said before.

    Brilliant! thank you very much mate!
    Have you any idea about starting a new show by pressing something followed by repetitively pressing 'q'? saw it done a couple of days back but never thought to ask
    thanks,
    ~Ash~

    Just realized. . .Would he be doing a 220clean?
    Some seperate questions now. . .

    How can i unpatch or "delete" fixtures that are patched as attributes?

    also when doing a 220clean, if i want to load just the dimmer patch settings how would i do this?

    thanks,

    No, 220clean is a utility for cleaning out corrupt files or cleaning up after a console crash. It can only be run from DOS mode and can delete all of your show files, so you should make sure that you really know what you are doing before you use it.


    I am not sure what you mean by deleting fixtures that are patched as attributes. You can delete the channel by going to the Patch screen and then hit the {CHAN} softkey. Then you can enter the channel you want to delete followed by the {DEL CHAN} softkey.

    The 220clean has nothing to do with loading any files. If you want to load the patch from an old show file you can do that from the ARCHIVE screen. Just select only the patch as opposed to "Whole Show" under what to Save/Load.
