If I enter

Chan 1+3+2+4 at 1

Then channels
Chan 1=Dim 1,
Chan 2=Dim 3,
Chan 3=Dim 2,
Chan 4 = Dim 4 As Expected.

Chan 1 at dim 1 through 4

I get Chan 1 part 1 at 1,
Chan 1 part 2 at 2,
Chan 1 part 3 at 3,
Chan 1 part 4 at dimmer 4. As Expected.

So Why if I try

Chan 1 + 2 + 3 + 1 + 2 +3 at 1

I get chan 1 = dim 1,
chan 2 at dim 2,
chan 3 at 3

I should get

chan 1 part 1 = dim 1
chan 1 part 2 = dim 4,
chan 2 part 1 = dim 2
chan 2 part 2 = dim 5
chan 3 part 1 = dim 3
chan 3 part 2 = dim 6

If I enter

...

chan 1 part 1 = dim 1
chan 1 part 2 = dim 4,
chan 2 part 1 = dim 2
chan 2 part 2 = dim 5
chan 3 part 1 = dim 3
chan 3 part 2 = dim 6

EDIT: I now note that I should try these before posting.... 

It appears that the console doesn't allow you to include the channel multiple times. If you have multiple parts, you can do the following:

1 + 2 + 3 at 1

(Chan 1 thru 3 at 1)

1+2+3 Part 2 at Next 

(Chan 1 thru 3, part 2 at 4)

Yup, that's the issue,

Also, IF I'm entering a whole bunch of channel numbers and I duplicate just 1, then every channel after that one will be off by a dimmer.

Ex Chan 1+2+3+4+2+5+6 at 1

chan 1 = 1
chan 2 = 2
chan 3 = 3
chan 4 = 4
chan 5=5 should be 6
chan 6=6 should be 7

It wold be really handy if I could included the channel multiple times.

and while I'm on the subject,  It would be nice if using this method, I could use chan 0 as a null channel so skipping a dimmer would be possible.
