Intended behavior or bug?

  • I use 'GOTO" "CUE" '15" (or what ever cue I'm using) followed by 'PLEASE" and I jump around my cues like that. all works well.

    Over the weekend we had a last second change during the show. I got my 'GOTO, CUE" ready and I knew I needed to bring an additional light up when I triggered it so I got that ready also. When I touched the light #22 for example the console immediately jumped to my cue without entering 'PLEASE' and turned the highlight off light #22.

    Which brings me to my question... is this intended behavior or bug? Is there a workaround or should I ask for a feature request.

    Thank you in advance for any help. 8)

  • Let me try to be less confusing...

    On the dot2 console I press the following buttons...

    [Goto]
    [Cue]
    [15]
    [Please]

    This works fine for jumping around the cue list.

    ***********************************************************

    But when I know I will have to bring a particular light up immediately with cue 15 and do the following...

    [Goto]
    [Cue]
    [15]
    Then press light fixture group [22] on the screen

    ... the console will immediately jump to cue 15

    ***********************************************************

    This is a habit I have from another console that when you wanted to GOTO a cue you were able to enter the GOTO CUE [15] on the board then highlight a particular fixture. When you press [Enter] it would then execute it and keep the fixture active to wheel it up.

    Thus my question is this intended behavior or a bug?
    Is there a workaround or should I ask for a feature request.

    I hope I made it clearer not more confusing....
