We were trying to pre-write all of the cues for a show in blind (or live) using the syntax Cue 1 thru 278 Enter Enter.  This only creates cue 1.  In live tried recording Cue 1 thru 278 Q Only and it still only created cue 1 (or whatever the first Cue listed was).

In blind the syntax Cue 1 + 2 + 3 + ... works to create the cues but is still much slower than thru (when you have exact cue spacing requirements). (Also- it doesn't ask you to confirm the creation of those cues which is a small concern).

It would be nice to be able to create a cuelist quickly this way (and adding an offset button would be really useful when you aren't spacing by 1).

Hey Matt,

The syntax you are looking for is [Blind] [Cue] x [Thru] [Thru] y [Enter] [Enter]. Currently, this only works with whole numbers and there is no offset, but I agree that would be useful as well.

Hope that helps.

Try using [Cue] 1 [Thru] [Thru] [Enter] << note the second [Thru].
