You may also wish to look at a tutorial produced by one of the forum members (Yves) which shows you how to create a new fixture type file ... Fixture Editor Tutorial - CLICK HERE Common Fixture Manager The original Frog series desks have 20 common fixture types stored on the desk. You can change these if you want to, to match fixtures that you commonly use. To do this, download and install the Fixture Tools (see above). It's also worth downloading the latest version of the fixture library at the same time. Run the Common Fixture Manager. You'll then see the following text which guides you through the rest of the process... Getting Started. The Frog series consoles have the ability to store up to twenty fixture types in the Flash memory of the console so that users are less dependant on the Library floppy disk which could get damaged or lost while on site. The Common Fixture Manager allows you to select from the factory issued Library and from user libraries which fixture types you would like to be stored in the consoles Flash memory. This does not affect the use or operation of disk based libraries in any way. After starting the Common Fixture Manager select Insert from the Edit menu. By first selecting from which library file you wish select fixtures and by then clicking in the box beside the fixtures you require you can create your Common fixtures file. You can repeat the process using different library files until you have twenty fixtures. By then selecting Save as from the File menu you can save your *.cft file to disk. Use the Load CFT in the Floppy Disk menu in Super User mode to install the new file. If you would like to reset your Common fixture types back to the factory default you will find a common.cft file on the software installation disk shipped with the desk. Note that installing new operating software on the desk will overwrite your custom *.cft file, and you will need to reinstall your custom *.cft file after performing an upgrade.
