how do we undo a cue update that was done in error?

can a single cue/group of cues be recalled from a saved show if a overwrite was done in error?

Thanks

Hi Simon,

There isn't a way of undoing updates. Currently there is no way of importing certain parts of a show file.

Best practice before doing updates, is to ultimately save your show file, but also copy your Master Playback to a different playback, as a backup. You can then copy from this backup, back over the top of the Master playback.

That's a shame. I always save my show file but might make a few changes as the show is running. Too much of a faff to save after every change.

Can you copy cues between different playbacks?

If I remember correctly I think that came in 7.9.4. 🤔

Yes you can - in the same way you’d type “RECORD x GO” or “DELETE x GO”, with x being the cue number and GO being the button of the Playback, you do the same for COPY.

So press COPY, type the source (“from”) cue number, and press the playback button, and then type the destination (“to”) cue number, and press the playback button.

You can also copy whole Playbacks in just three button presses (COPY GO GO - with the first GO being the source and the second being the destination). Lots of people (including me) use this as a method of creating a “backup” of the stack before doing something which might not work (for example, during Edinburgh Fringe this year, we used Phantom to turn an ETC EOS showfile with approx 80 cues into a ZerOS showfile with over 200 cues by copying, updating, inserting etc, so at regular intervals I copied the Master Playback to other empty playbacks.

Also worth remembering you can use THRU and AND when copying cues. You only need to define a single cue in the destination - any point cues or numerical gaps etc will automatically be included in the new destination cues
