    the values you see, when clearing your programmer, could be coming from another user's programmer

    to clear programmer of all users

    Thank you Andreas. This worked perfectly. I will add this to our programming cheat sheet in case it happens again.

    ryan our board is on version I'm guessing the newer version wiped whatever it was that was causing the issue.

    Thank you all again!

    My buddy ran into a snag while programming today. This ONLY affected our Spiiders. He was able to set the color, beam, intensity; however, out of the blue, setting position will not save to the cue.

    We tried absolute values, relative values, presets, manual settings, phasers to no avail (all other fixtures work just fine), after we hit Update, then clear everything, the fixtures would just go back to home position.

    We narrowed it down to the show file itself, as the Spiiders behaved as it should in another show file we have.

    We tried unpatching/repatching... that worked; but then we lose all of our presets in all of our songs (so not an option).

    This is NOT a MIB issue. We created a brand new sequence sheet with only two cues and no matter what position we set the Spiiders to, once we update the cue, and clear the Spiiders would revert back to home position.

    Through complete and pure dumb luck, he managed to fix the issue, but we have no idea what he did to fix it.

    Luckily we still have the show file where this is happening. I've attached the file (the 3d will show exactly what is happening). We would like to know how we can fix this in case it happens again.

    To reproduce:

    - Select the Spiiders (group on Display 4, Fixtures 401 thru 405).

    - Change their position

    - Hit Update, and update cue (sequence 70)

    - Hit clear 3 times

    - In the 3D (Display 3), the spiiders (currently red) will revert back to home position

    Thanks! That will be somewhat helpful. Not exactly an intelligent search. For example, if I type in

    List Sequence "*you*"

    it will find all sequences that contains "you", "your", etc... however, it will not list the sequence if it STARTS with "you"

    Not really a problem on my end but I just thought I'd point that out.

    I can easily have 50-150 sequence sheets. Is there any kind of search/filter function/cmd/macro that I can quickly find a sequence sheet by name?

    For now I'm clustering sequence sheets in alpha order with spaces in between (IE all the A's together with 4 or 5 empty spaces, all the B's, etc).

    MIB seems to work fine for the most part, except for when I have fixtures in a positional phaser.

    Example: In Cue 2, my fixtures dim off. In Cue 3 I have fixtures dim on and go into a circle phaser. Since in Cue 2 these fixtures are off, setting MIB on Cue 3 should work. However, when I hit Go from Cue 2 to Cue 3 (with MIB), the fixtures will either: turn on and remain motionless... or just tilt very slowly instead of doing the circle animation it's supposed to. My current solution is to manually "MIB" by setting the circle phaser in Cue 2 (and manually delaying the position change until after the dim is off) and then removing all the tracking in Cue 3 so all I have to do is set dim to full for smooth transition into motion.

    Bug? Or am I doing something wrong?
