Can't rotate fixtures - bad manual

Postby joapalmer » Tue Jan 16, 2018 12:45 am

Hello.
I'm using the MQ40N running 1.7.8.1 software. I've connected a computer running the visualizer with the same version.
I can successfully move the fixtures over the X,Y and Z axis, however I cannot rotate them.

In the manual pages at 40.2.3 it say that I should be able to rotate the fixtures using Encoders B, C, D and corresponding soft buttons - or enter the values in the spreadsheet. However on the MQ40N B, C and D is for "View universe", "Head test" and "Test cursor" and there are no columns for fixture rotation in the spreadsheet - DEAD END!

What am I doing wrong? I have a show and need to be able to position my fixtures in the visualizer, this is really bad that the manual says wrong. I tried to find it all over but there is no way I can find how to rotate the fixtures...

Please help!!!

Kind regards Joa

Goto setup, view setting settings mode and be sure it stays in advanced mode!

Thank you! Yes it was that simple! But I cant seem to be able to save the setting. Every time I restart the console MQ40N is back to "Simple" mode. Annoying that I can't set it to "Normal" as default. Any idea?

MQ40N is sold as a console with less features and less options to make it easier.
That's the reason.
