    Phil,

    I have not looked at your show yet, but could it be selecting the odd numbers because it selects the "odd" portion of the selection not based on fixture numbers.

    However with version 2.2.2 we added a new feature that will allow you to select based on fixture numbers instead of the fixtures within the selection. From the release notes:
    Select Odd or Even by fixture number
    Using PIG+ODD or PIG+EVEN will select fixtures from the current selection based on user number instead of selection order.

    I can see where you are getting confused. Our selection manager starts enumerating fixtures at 0, not 1. This means that when you select odd fixtures you will get fixtures 0, 2, 4, 6, 8 from the the original selection. This is a bit confusing because these are even numbers, but in reality it is the odd fixtures being selected because in the real world there is no such thing as fixture 0.

    Ahhh. This makes sense now.

    So, the Odd and Even selections are really [Every Other - Set 1 of 2] and [Every Other - Set 2 of 2].

    Good to know.

    Thanks for the modifier trick Brad.
