A few annoying bugs/operator errors found in version 18.104.22.168 (Windows 10 Pro 21H1 build 19043.1165 64Bit, 64gb ram, 2x Nvidia GTX760 SLI, i7-4820K CPU 3,7GHz)
When copying a group containing numbers in the name e.g 3001 thru 3010 to an empty group renames the newly created group to "3001 thru 3011. Relabeling the new group to "3001 thru 3010" is not possible. Commandline says OK: Label Group x.
When labeling it to a completly different name its fine: however when relabeling it to "3001 thru 3010"the new name becomes "3001 thru 3011". It looks like GMA3onPC won't accept double names in showfiles. When labeling two groups in an identical way there is a number placed behind the name e.g. A group named "Megapointe" will become "Megapointe#2" when copied which makes sense. but when i label a second group "Megapointe" it will be labeled "Megapointe#2"as wel. I would like to be able to have identical names in showfiles for groups which contain the same fixtures but when selection order is different.
Importing MVR files:
MVR file created in WYSIWYG R47. Data is transfered fine, no problems at all. FHowever fixture types are not working at all, Fixtures don't show up in 3D. Solution for now is to change fixturetypes from GDTF to GMA2 fixtures. Than everything works as expected.
Groups and align:
I had a behaviour, which might be intended but seems a bit strange to me: Situation: grid of moving lights 5 rows, 5 colums. I made a selection of 5 fixtures based on fixture ID's (1 thru 5)(first column on the left side) Stored a group. I dit this for the other 4 columns as wel. First 3 groups can be manipulated in all possible ways. putting them at a 55 degree angle and fan them out using Aling/ works perfect. The next two groups can't be fanned out/act as a block of 5. Delete the group and restore the group again fixes the problem. MAtricks was definitly not active.
Question: is the setup of MAtricks stored into groups as well?
Group at group:
When using syntax "Groupx at Group Y" over groups with identical amount of fixtures the values are not cloned correct: I have two groups containing 4 fixtures. I set the first group to the needed pan values ( -120, -110 ,-80, -70)
When using syntax "Group 2 at Group 1" a popup opens, i choose "High Priority" (because "Low Priority" doesn't do anything) now the fixtures from group 2 have these values ( -110, -80, -70, -70). The clone is not executed well, it won't take over the correct values from the original fixtures and applies the wrong values to the second group
Thanks in advance
