still something is dark.
In my mind with new auto numbering function every scene is a cue but in original cue sheet function every scene has it own cues sheet. This confuse me a lot.
From my point of view every time I press something on keyboard is a new cue, it dosen't matter if is inside the same scene o I'm jumping into new one.
Forgive me! I thought you were asking about the Cue Sheet function, not the new Cue Number function.
I myself have been thinking about how to merge the pre-existing "Cue Sheet" function with new "Cue Number" function since its inception. It would be wonderful to connect them and have the Cue Number function automatically populate the Cue Sheet. I also think of cues in the same way you do; some are internal to Isadora Scenes. In fact, you saw at the Werkstatt show-and-tell that I built myself an Isadora Patch and set of User Actors that perform a similar function to the new Cue Number system, but with the addition of what I call "Internal Cues"; cues that are triggered within Scenes as opposed to by entering Scenes. This is a function I would love to see implemented in the new Cue Number function at some point down the road.
We're actually reviewing all of the Knowledge Base articles at the moment, and writing down suggestions for new articles we'd like to create so I'll add a tutorial for the new Cue Number function to the list. The explanation of the Cue Number system that Mark first gave in his blog can be found at this link.
I would also love to seen the inclusion of something similar to the easily-accessible "MIDI LOCK" button I included in my system, for ease of access during rehearsal when one has a video computer slaved to a lighting board and needs to program without being dragged around by the lightboard. My MIDI LOCK doesn't disable MIDI, but instead closes a Gate, disallowing the board from controlling the video computer while I program. This way, I still get the incoming MIDI Show Control data, which means I can use my Control Panel in order to display the most recent lighting cue number, even when the board isn't controlling my computer, so that I can easily jump back into where I need to be once I've finished programming and disable my MIDI LOCK.
