"list" syntax error

tedcooktedcook Registered User
I don't know about anyone else, but this syntax error seems to get me quite often:

I press list to front my cuelist window (which is already open), touch the cuelist I want (usually to move it to a fader) but I get a syntax error.

After fronting the cuelist window, I have to remember to clear "list" from the command line before making my selection. It would be great if the console could recognize the user's intent and not throw a syntax error when doing the above sequence. (I know list-list or open-list fronts it without putting list in the command line, but all the same..)

I can press IPCB to front the IPCB pallets and press my selection without a syntax error, any reason the cuelist directory needs to behave differently?

thanks.

    This is just a guess, but could it have something to to with having Guard on or off? I assume since you are touching your list to move it that Guard is on in your List directory and off for your IPCB directories....

    I am not sure how the console would make a distinction .... you may like to touch the list to move it while somebody else may prefer to type the list number on the keypad... how would it know the difference - a preference setting maybe?

    I think pressing list then touching cuelist 'xx' is pretty unambiguous. It should behave the exact same as pressing list then typing ##, where ## corresponds to 'xx'.

    There's no guard function for IPCB, but maybe that has something to do with why they behave differently?

    Uhhh... pretty sure there is Guard on IPCB directories... but either way it may be part of what is happening...

    So you would like the console to delete the first List press when you follow it with a 'virtual' list press.... instead of kicking an error... or somehow ignore the first press...

    I really have no idea what the answer is .... but it brings up interesting questions as to the exact nature of the command line...

    What do you know, you're right about IPCB guard (of course). My apologies, I never had any need for it with those pallets so I never really registered it existed.
