Hello All -

Casual user here... I just fired up Freestyler after being away from it for several months. I thumbed through the wiki and couldn't figure this one out....

What's the blue arrow on the fixture icon mean? (attached) The fixture works fine - just curious.

Thanks!

I have never seen this. Please open the picture that is attached to the fixture in Paint or some other photo app. If the arrow is there then it is simply a part of the photo and not related to any Freestyler function.

It's good to hear that you've never seen this. I read through pages and pages of documentation trying to find it the other day.

The arrow is absolutely coming from the application. Other fixtures of the same type do not have this arrow. Just this one.

It goes away when in sequence-edit mode and if I to reset all fixtures (which I don't want to do, of course).

Would you mind creating a backup using the backup/restore feature of Freestyler and posting it? That might assist in determining what the symbol means unless Jan or someone knows.

Or use the fixture creator to export the fixture definition and post it here.

That's it! Thanks. I must have cloned another fixture to create this one. I'll have to retrace my steps to see if I can identify its partner.

Thanks again.

If you click the clone again it should show you what it's cloned as...
