Is there a convenient way to add multiple gobo slots ?
I would like to add 256 gobo slots, and don't want spend the evening ;-)

I am pretty sure I once got a wizzard-like window to automate the proces, but I never seen it reappear :-(

I know I can edit the xml,
But the parser is very unforgiving, Look at it the wrong way and the entire custom manufacturer disappears without notice.

Hi Bart,

You can do a long press on the "Add gobo slot", this give you the dialog to add multiple slots at once.

I must warn you though, adding 256 slots does not really work everywhere, last time I did something like that I made 127 in the first gobo wheel and 128 in the second.

For editing the XML I recommend using something like Notepad++ to make it easier to keep the XML file valid.

Greetings,
Bootsy

Thank you.
Maybe you can add this undocumented feature to the builder manual ...

Are there any more "long press" features in the visual productions family you can tell me about?

The only one I know is the long press on the [release]-button in cuelux pro.

Hi Bart,

Not that I can think of now...

I will add it to the list for the manual.
