Fixture Schedule

Selecting Fixtures

Any individual cell within the Fixture Schedule can be edited by clicking on it, to edit a single fixture. Alternatively, you can select a range of fixtures first, and then use the column header to make your edits to multiple fixtures at once.

Selecting fixtures in the fixture schedule is very useful, as it allows you to edit multiple fixtures at once. To select fixtures, press the channel buttons of the fixtures you wish to select. Their channel buttons will light to indicate they are selected. Make sure your Fader Function button is toggled to "Channels". To select a sequential range of fixtures, press and hold the first channel button, and then tap the last of your range. For example pressing and holding channel button 1, and tapping channel button 12, will select fixtures 1 through to 12. Their buttons will light, and I will just see those fixtures displayed in my fixture schedule.

To clear your selection, tap the Clear button. You will then see all fixtures in your show file listed.

Selecting fixtures with syntax

You can use syntax commands, to select the fixtures you wish to view and edit in the Fixture Schedule. Syntax commands are typed into the command line, running along the bottom of the fixture schedule window.

You can use the And, Thru and Except keys, to select multiple fixtures at once. Some examples:

1 Enter


This selects fixture 1.

2 And 3 Enter

2, And 3,

This selects fixtures 2 and 3.

5 Thru 1 0 Enter

5 Thru 10,

5 Thru 10, Except 7,

This selects fixtures 5, 6, 8, 9 and 10.

3 Thru 9 Except 5 Except 6 Enter

This selects fixtures 3, 4, 7, 8 and 9. Note how Except is used twice to exclude two different channels from the range.
