    • Hi,
      backup your show first and then (if Replace command does not offer swopping fixtures at all) you can try:

      1. way: There was, I think, a command in gma2, I cannot find it in manual now, like Replace Fixture 1 Thru 2 With Fixture 2 Thru 1. This would swap data in between these 2 fixtures. Try it in dot2. If it fails then:

      2. way, keeping IDs: Patch the same fixturetype as your 2 fixtures are, set its ID to...1001. Clone Fixture 1 At 1001.
      Then normaly Replace Fixture 1 With Fixture 2.
      Then Clone Fixture 1001At Fixture 2.
      Then Delete Fixture 1001 in the patch.

      3. way, IDs change: Try to swop IDs in your patch in between those 2 fixtures. But it is only an idea, try it. But you may not like changing them.

    • Thank you for your answers. Usually I change devices by changing their addresses. Some time ago, in the show, I exchanged device ID, but it was also necessary, as far as I remember my memory, to replace the devices' names so that the elements of the show would be "in place". I will try all the proposed methods. Thank you.
    • Hello.
      Your proposals work.
      However, I would like to add to the "wish list"- add the command / macro "Replace Fixture 1 Thru 2 With Fixture 2 Thru 1", just like from the Astander post. In my opinion, it is a very helpful function, which I often use, and which would significantly improve my work and shorten her time.
      Thank you.
