    Default Drag and Drop Channel Ordering

    Here's something that I just ran into recently, and would be good for the Holdman sequences...

    It'd be nice to have the ability to drag and drop channels to re-arrange the order, on the screen, but keep the channel mapping for the controllers (or have a preference for setting re-ordering)

    You can do this in a profile.

    Create a profile from the sequence, channel order, define new order.

    You now have a window you can drag and drop channel order!

    You can do this within any sequence. It does not have to be in a profile. ;)

    DOH! I missed it. Right click on your channel listing and then Reorder Channel Outputs. I guess this is what happens when I put Vixen down for the summer.

    Wow, I guess I need to explore a little. I was at work when I posted that, and I never thought to even try it first. We weren't able to do this in 1.1 were we? Maybe that's where I got it from.... riiiiighhht....

    Nope, couldn't do it 1.1
    It was a feature I anxiously awaited for in the release of Vixen 2.0, because of my channel layout.

    Superb timing on this post! I spent most of Sunday afternoon 10 to 25 feet off the ground in the tree in my front yard trying to "set" my light strings where I wanted them with a 20' snow rake refitted with a hook on the end. After several hours I decided not to plug them into the controller as I had planned but rather as I physically, easily (remember, I am up in a tree) could. This is exactly what I need to work on next and now I don't even have to look it up!

    During testing of my current setup this past weekend, I found I had a bad RJ45 jack affecting the operation of 4 used channels.

    Rather than disassemble the controller to fix it (and burn valuable weekend daylight), I spent 2 minutes moving the Cat5 to a spare jack by editing the natural order in the profile.

    What at first read:

    "</ChannelObjects>
    <Outputs>0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16, 17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25, (etc)</Outputs>
    <PlugInData>"

    Now reads:

    "</ChannelObjects>
    <Outputs>19,20,21,22,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15 ,16,17,18,0,1,2,3,23,24,25, (etc)</Outputs>
    <PlugInData>"

    Adjustable preview and finished sequences like it just fine!

    I've seen info like this posted before. Which file is that in, and what do you use to edit it in text format?
    1 channel, 0 dimmable. Powered by a man flicking a lightswitch to the beat.

    It's the [Name].pro file (the profile your using) in the profile directory.

    I use Wordpad to edit the text.

    I know I don't have to tell you to create a backup before attempting!
