Disable Release on Wings

I think this was already requested but can't find it anymore.

Can we have an option in the Control Panel to disable Release, next Page, and Assert on Wings?
Sometimes I got Somebody sitting next to me who got an additonal wing for TV Lights or switching cameras or things like that.
Last time it happened again, that this guy, who wasn't that familiar with lighting desks, pressed the next page button by accident, you could believe what happened......
Fortunately I had a Save Activity on the next Page, so the stage did not go completely dark...

    Well the cheap solution I've seen some people use is to put a water bottle cap or soda bottle cap over any keys you don't want someone to accidentally hit....works really well, especially if a little gaffers tape is used to hold the caps in place:friday:

    Another solution is to have a yard stick handy to swat the guy who presses buttons he should not be pressing...:hitwithrock:

    We have an enhancment logged for improved locking of wings.. I will add these comment to it.

    Hi Rolf

    i was runnig the show lights for Miss Peru TV show some time ago.
    the network, of course, told me that because of the union, the TV lights has to be operated by the regular guy working for the network, but.... there was no budget for an aditional console!!! so, they told me that, for sure, there is some way to split that good looking boar on two boards... glup!
    so,... what i did was... to built a page whit all the TV Lights recorded on the wing, and created a template page, so he used the wing as a regular lighting board while i was having fun whit my moving gears...
    i guess that a template aditional to a yard stik handy will help when you have to share the board whit some body who doesn´t have any experience whit the WH...

    cheers

    hi Rolf

    Maybe Record all that the other guy will use in the wings and create a TEMPLATE will help.
    so, he can raise and low the faders as will and not tmess whit your programing.
    some like your experience happens to me when i did lights for Miss Peru TV show some time ago.
    the network told me that because of the union the Tv lights had to be operated by the regular guy working for them but.. there is no budget for an aditional board!!!(can you believed? :15: )...so i gave him all the TV lights on faders into the wing and make this to work as a regular lighting board while i was having fun whit my moving gears :headbang:
