Fixture names default to the fixture type (eg “LED Unit”) but they can be renamed by selecting the “Name” cell in the normal way. For example, you may label them “Stage Left LED Unit”, “Centre Stage LED unit” and “Stage Right LED Unit”. Multiple names can be edited at the same time by selecting the fixtures and selecting the column header button which is labelled “Change all Names”.
Fixture names are shown in the Output Window (pictured), along with the MFF Window. This allows you to see exactly what each channel fader is controlling.
When sequential names are identical, the name is only displayed once per row in the Output window. A vertical line splits up fixtures with different names.
