Same Fixtures different location


We have a template file we use for our music gigs containing palettes, effects and recorded presets with effects embedded in them.

We have moved some of the fixtures from the grid to the floor for this season and want to update all of the above in the simpliest way possible. We might move our fixtures back to the grid next year so don't want to overwriting the information for them.

We have initially given them a new channel number with same DMX address.

This there a better philosophy to do this?

Can I apply a wizard that will copy Attribute info when it appears in one channel and apply it to another channel?

I'm interested in how others deal with this.

Thanks Gareth
