Any chance the Flash softkey could be moved to more softkeys?
or at least one softkey over?
Presently it's the next softkey in the same place as Select_All
So I selected all and triggered the entire rig to flash by being slightly clumsy with my finger.
This rig had solenoids triggering water in it too and I found out just then that the flash function overrides inhibits, therefore raining on stage management during their pre-show checks.
not to mention that doing this sort of thing has the potential to overload phases (luckily it didn't)
I barely use this function (just for testing remote dimmers on practicals that get swapped out at intervals/intermissions) so I wouldn't mind it being one more button push away from flashing the entire rig.
i don't think that's what this post is about. OP wasn't trying to use the Flash softkey, he was trying to avoid it...
[Shift][Out] or [Shift][Full] might be your new best friend. Great for checking practicals.
The real moral of this story is that flash needs to not override inhibitive subs. In my mind it should have the same priority as manual.
Exactly that Ueli.
I use the flash softkey when I need to walk away from the desk to check a practical.
I'm aware of most of the shift functions on the desk.
Yes that too, but when it's that easy to flash the entire rig I think it's a matter of safety.
This has the potential to blow entire dimmer racks, which I'm merely flagging up as too easy to do with a lingering finger.
Move the softkey elsewhere (more SKs preferably)
