    Default Pixel Grid Serpentine colums

    I a custom made Pixel grid that has serpentine columns starting from bottom left and to get it to work properly I have to manually patch every other (even patch points) I have to check reverse order of selected outputs. This is mind numbingly a pain in the backside. Is there an easier way to do this?

    When you select your "even" row/column, click the Reverse Element Order check box in the Patching Options

    Thanks. I was wondering if there where an easier way then having to patch each individual column/row manually.

    If you suspect you may patch them more than a one time event, you can also add order properties to the elements to set the patching order. Select your grid element, in the properties section below the element list choose patching order and select the gear icon. It will bring all the elements into an editor form were you can order them in the patch order. In your case select the elements in every other row and right click reverse. Alternate back and forth until you get every other row. Once you have them in the order you need to patch, select ok. Now you can patch straight through and it will honor the order you set. You can do that on any prop that may have groupings that make patching straight through challenging. Props created in the custom prop editor have this set by default and the order tab in the editor allows you to set that how you want.
    One more piece to this is once you have it created in the preview you can export a wire diagram by right clicking the element in the display setup and you can see how it should be wired based on the order/patching.

    Awesome stuffs here. Thank you. I am wanting to use the grid in another profile (from Christmas to Halloween). This is exactly what I was looking for.
