I looked through the forums and couldn't find a similar question so here goes. Say I have a channel that has two fixtures and two scrollers patched to it. The data would be: Channel 44, Dimmer 119, DMX 214-215 Channel 44, Dimmer 126, DMX 222-223 What if I wanted to copy the patch info for all of this to channel 151? Is it possible and how hard would it be?! thanks much! Pat

Isn't [Copy To] working for you?


It should be as easy as

44 [copy to] 151 [enter]

Given the 4 parts, you might need to copy to by part, but I shouldn't think so.

I've had wonderful luck with Move To in patch, to move all my house lights higher up the channel list.  Their instances in subs get moved too!

(130 thru 168 move to 201 enter).  Subs will now have 201 instead of 130, etc.  I believe parked channels get shuffled too.  Not sure if Macro references change . . .

As additional to Andrews post, seems like you want  Move To, which you get in patch by pressing Copy To twice.
