Pig + @ (Unpatching in view by DP) BUG

brandon_cbrandon_c Registered User
Version 2.3.1 it seems that the [pig] + [@] shortcut to unpatch does not work. Not just the shortcut but also the [Unpatch @] button.

More precisely, it does work for a fixture with user number 1 that is patched to dmx 1. However, it does not work with fixtures with other user numbers (where it is patched is irrelevant).

An example for further convincing:

Let us patch 10 VL3500 Spots.

VL3500S 1 > 10 @ 1

Now we have successfully patched 10 fixtures. Note that our user numbers are 1 thru 10.

Now we shall unpatch fixture 3.

[pig] 3 [@] 3

This did not unpatch the fixture.

Next try to unpatch fixture 1.

[pig] 1 [@] 1

Fixture 1 is unpatched.

    The reason it works with with [pig] 1 [@] 1 and not [pig] 3 [@] 3 in this case is because the Hog unpatches by dmx address and not by fixture number. In fact, you don't even need the fixture number.

    Hold [pig] and press @, release both buttons, and then type a dmx address or range of dmx addresses.

    Perhaps you may want to change how the manual is worded. Currently it reads:

    "Pig + @: When patching with View by DP enabled, unpatches the selected fixture."

    Thus, my confusion.
