Palettes as masks in copy command?

Hi Guys

So I want to re-call the state of my blue wash from Cue 10 into the programmer while sitting in a different cue. My blue wash is Group Palette 10.

I find that I can type

Cue 13 Group 10 Copy State Enter

and all is good, but I want to press the palette for my blue wash instead of typing 'Group 10'. When I do that, pressing the palette dumps what I've typed and starts a new command.

Is there a way to do this? This feels pretty basic, but I can't find it in the manual?

Thanks

    Yeah that would get me the whole cue, but I want just what the blue wash (Group 10) was doing...?

    Found it for myself! I had the cue as the source and the palette as the mask when in fact it works the other way round : [palette] cue 13 copy state enter
    Happy days! :)

    Sorry, I did get you wrong then.
    You also might try the LIVE command.

    LIVE and your BLUE palette will select you all the fixtures that are in BLUE.
