Hi folks,
I'm using a HOG 3 for the first time on a 3-day show. I used to run a Hog 2 and currently run Grand MA's and Compulite Vectors.
I'm stuck!

I cannot consistently clear my programmer after editing a cue in a cuelist. I change my cue, update and then press CLEAR. It doesn't always clear the programmer. Sometimes it seems to do something like an UNDO.
Even if I do manage to clear it, I can sometimes press CLEAR and it does the UNDO later on.

Is the CLEAR key supposed to function as UNDO? Do I have something set wrong in preferences??

Other question, how can I stop an effect in a cuelist. Cue #1 is a pan effect, cue #2 is a blackout with a fixed pan position. The effect continues when I go to cue #2.

Any help would be appreciated. I'm stumped.

    No, CLEAR should do as you expect. If you need immediate help then here is Mitch's contact information.

    Perhaps you are opening a cue,
    and burying the window under another window,
    You can have multiple editors open on Hog 3.
    Just a idea,
    Although I have no idea why your effect wouldn't stop.
    If there is some sort of pan value in your cue 2 there should be no reason for the cue not to work.

    Thanks guys. Mitch Peebles came up with the solution.
    It turned out that a keyboard I had plugged into the board had a shorted CTRL key. It was preventing CLEARS, UPDATES and all manor of things.
    Once I unplugged the keyboard and rebooted the console, all was good.

    Ah yes with CNTRL stuck down, the desk would always be in a PIG+ mode... not pleasant.

    I am happy to hear that Mitch helped you to sort it out.
