The final column in the Scene List is used for editing the List itself. To delete, move or copy+paste Scenes:
Enable the Edit function by touching the Edit button (near the top right corner of the screen);
Touch the round Edit indicator at the end of a row to select the row – the indicator will go red to indicate that its row is being edited.
Multiple rows can be selected. You can also select the complete set of rows or columns by touching the Edit label itself.
The three edit functions listed below the Edit button will now be available: Del (Delete), Move and Copy.
To delete Scenes, touch their Edit indicators so that they go red, then press & hold the Del button.
Scene deletion cannot be undone without reloading your showfile.
The Active Scene cannot be deleted.
To move Scenes, touch their Edit indicators so that they go red;
Touch the Move button – it will go blue to indicate that it is active;
Now touch the Scene which is in the position you wish to put the Moved Scene(s). The Scenes will be placed above the Scene you touched.
The Scenes will move to the new location. The other Scenes will move to close up any gaps.
To copy Scenes, touch their Edit indicators so that they go red;
Touch the Copy button – it will go blue and become a Paste button.
Now touch the Scene which is in the position you wish to paste the new Scenes.
The Scenes will be duplicated at the new location, with the word Copy appended to their names. The other Scenes will move to create space for them.
You can rename the copied Scenes in the usual way (See Automation Names and Notes).
Scene ID is for display purposes only and serve no operational purpose within the software. The Auto/Renumber ID button (in the right side of the Detail Display when the ID column is selected) defines what happens to ID numbers when the Scene list is re-arranged:
- When the button is active, the ID column is simply renumbered to stay in order.
- When the button is inactive, Scene IDs will not change when Scenes are re-ordered; if new Scenes are placed in between old ones, their IDs will increment upwards from the Scene before, using decimals if necessary to prevent their IDs from matching the Scene after. Pressing & holding the Auto/Renumber ID button can then be used to renumber the Scenes in order.
