How to change what fixtures on on each page irreverent of the patches?

Recommended Posts

Channel (fixture) number and DMX address are independent. So you can configure fixture #2 (channel fader #2) to DMX address 6 for example.

You do this under Setup. You can tap and renumber the fixture, providing that fixture (channel) number is not already used.

The output screen will follow the Channel (fixture) number so you can't for example have a different fader order to the order shown on the screen - because I think that would drive you to madness anyway!

I hope this what you're looking for...

Hello,

Welcome to the Zero 88 Forum.

Fixture numbers are tied to the channel fader number, so channel faders cannot be numbered separately to the fixture number.

You could however store each fixture to its own playback if you wanted to, so that each fixture is on a playback page in your custom order.

Hope this helps,

Edward

Yes you can rename the fixtures. Again in Setup when you have the list of patched fixtures, the second column defaults to the fixture name, but you can edit that name like other fields. These names will be used on the Output Screen and in the fader pane on an external display (FLX, FLX-S48 or FLX-S24 via Monitor app).

I'm not aware you can add any other text/notes. And the name will get truncated on the Output Screen. (Where a sequence of fixtures have the same name, e.g. Dimmer, then the name can span the width of the fixtures so is less likely to get truncated. So put the "important bit" at the start of the name, so title them e.g. "SR Wash", "SL Wash" not "Wash SR" and "Wash SL", then at worst you'll get something like "SR W" and "SL W" rather than "Wash" and "Wash"!
