Proportional parameter change behavior

AndrisAndris Registered User
I've noticed that when changing a parameter for a group of fixtures that already has a different value for each parameter, all fixtures change proportionally as I turn the wheel, as expected.
However, when I get to the parameter extents (ie, 0 or 255), and spin the wheel the other way, the proportions between each fixture are still there instead of all starting from zero in sync like they had in hog2.
I find this annoying if I'm trying to grab a group of fixtures with different values and change the value so it is consistent across all fixtures. This is especially prevalent using media servers, as different layers have discreet effect values making this kind of a pain to 'reset'.
Is this an intended effect of the parameter wheels?

    My personal feeling is, yes, this is the intended effect. If I'm using it for intensities that have been balanced, I want it to remain proportional no matter where I go in the range.

    I believe this is also why the "/" attribute was added. Hold the "/" key and spin an encoder and it will "equalize" all selections to that value (first in the selection)....which it sounds like what you are looking for.

    I somehow missed the "/" attribute, that's exactly the solution!
    When did that come around?

    long time ago, It seems to me that this feature already existed for my first show with the Hog 3 several years ago.
