Cue assigned to executor/command key

I've stumbled across something odd and was wondering if anyone might have some insight into this.

I've got a several cuelists each with a single cue in them; they're all set to "Add release end cue". The single cue in these lists contains an effect that runs on the dimmers of some movers I have. Basically, they're just dimmer chases of various types/patterns. Simple enough.

I have three of them assigned to the cmd keys and they're set to "Flash"; I use them as bump keys for the chase effects.

Last weekend, one of them stopped working...just one. If I change the action to "Go" or "Back" the effect will run, but I have to tap it again to stop it. In other words, it's like it just doesn't work if I set it to the "Flash" action. When set to flash--for this cue only--nothing happens when I press the key. Again, it works when set to "Go" or "Back". Does anyone have any idea what would have happened that broke this single cue/cuelist? I even went so far as to deleting the cuelist and recreating the effect. I also tried assigning it to other keys. The behavior persists even after trying these things. I'm really stumped!

    is "go on flash" turned on?

    You must enable go on flash and release on off for the flash-button options in your cue-list

    "Go on Flash" is not enabled for this cue or the other cues that I use and assign this way. They work...yet this one does not...

    What's more odd is that it DID work...then one day, it just stopped. I use these cues all the time so I noticed right away when it wasn't right. I was running 2.7.0 when it stopped working. I upgraded to 3.0.0 with hopes that it would clear up, but it did not. Hence why I'm stumped...

    Setting the Go On Flash option with Release on Off cleared up the issue. Thanks guys!
    I still wonder why it worked without this before, and also why it still works for the other cues I have. Oh well...stranger things have happened. :) I'm enabling it for all the cues, just to be safe.

    Your other lists might have been HTP, in that case you wouldn't need go on flash.
