Long requested feature (for Eos) shows up in 1.4.2.  [Tab] + [Clear] will close all open tabs, except 1 (Live/Blind) and 2 (PSD).

Anne,

 Does this work in the ION version of software too?

It does work on Ion - on both Ion and Eos, it is [At][+][+] and [At][-][-].

It is obviously more useful on Ion where you don't have the [+%] or [-%] keys on the pad.

I love that I can have channel specific timing for every channel in every cue. I use this all the time to bump in/out my hazer during a slow fade.

I would like to add to this that while in live, this will not take effect until you hit [record] [enter]. Otherwise, it forgets the time you just added.

Here's a great command sequence to preheat lamps for the next cue:

[Group] [Cue] <the current cue #> [-] [Group] [Cue] <the next cue #> [@] <preheat level>

I may be mistaken... but shouldn't the cue numbers be reversed?

ie: [group cue (next) - group cue (current) @ <preheat>?

You could also use the preheat function as another alternative

I agree with that, I couldn't get it to work until I reversed the numbers.

Great for a quick fix

In the current software, you can access these commands by holding down the [Select Last] key, and typing the appropriate softkey.

You can also assign a color, beam or focus time to certain channels.  If you want to see the time moving in real time push and hold the data button.

Did you know that if you press [Go to Cue] [x] [enter] and that cue does not exist (you'll see an error posted on the command line) - if you press [next] or [last], the desk will post the next or last cue accordingly.  You can just press [Enter] to confirm the action.

Did you also know that [Sub] [1] [thru] [Enter] will select your entire sub list.  You can then press the load button of the first unmapped fader you wish to load your subs on, and they will load sequentially.
