Bug: Hog4 behaves strange after Fixture Editing

I observed the following on the ROadHOG and on Hog4PC:

If you use your own fixture in some cues and you edit it, for example you change the meaning of a DMX channel from Intensity to DimmerControl because you have made a mistake during the creation of the fixture, the HOG4 does not control this fixture in some channels anymore. You cannot change some values with the encoders for example.

You have to reboot the software or the Hog4PC. After that the fixture is usable again as usual.

    Was it necessary to reboot? Usually log off and back is enough.

    Hi, even that is a software design issue. And: The operator does not know about this issue and tries to find his failure for minutes or hours. It should be mentioned in the manual, at least.

    Hi, you are kind of right, but also in the section 27 of the manual is explained that the fixture builder manual is not complete and does not cover all the things about the builder.
    Also the builder itself is not complete solution.
    Fortunately, you can always ask tech support, forums, fellow programmers, Facebook group...
