Select a cue without activating it

  • Hi,

    I have run into a problem that I can not figure out.

    I have a cue list which only contains information about gobos, and I also have other cues such as position and color.

    I want to select a cue from the cue list without triggering it. If I am running a position cue and I want to run a gobo too, I want to be able to select a gobo from my gobo cue list and activate it when I have the fader up on that executer.

    In short, I want to be able to pre-select a cue within the cuelist but only GO when I bring up the fader.

    here you can use the "load" keyword in the commandline "load cue 10 seq x" or the load function assigned to an executor button.

    If the load button is pressed a popup with the cue list appears where you can choose the cue which should be loaded.

    With the next "go" the loaded cue will be executed.

  • Thanks for your response, but it does not seem to work. When I type the command, I get an error which is "Error #12: EXPECTED NAME:" and in the command line I see the command is "LoadShow...". I found this yesterday before I posted this thread, but I think this only works for grandMA2. Maybe I am doing something wrong.

  • I wanted to ask if you are sure you are using Dot2, because I just took a look at the versions.

    And it would not be a solution for me even if it worked, because I want to just go to the next cue without activinting it.

    No problem thanks for your time!

  • Bump. I'm looking for how to do this as well.

    I want to have next and previous buttons that can select a cue from a cue list but wait until I put fader up to execute it. Using commands for each cue won't work in my circumstance. From reading this thread, I'm thinking it's not possible?
