 +==== Open Fixture Creator ==== 
 +\\ 
 +Open “Fixture Creator” in Other mode.\\ 
 +\\ 
 +{{:fixture_creator:tutorial:switchpack_custom.gif?|}}\\ 
 +\\ 
 +Add manufacture name (Remember to spell correct), give the fixture a proper name, add picture and fill in info in the text box.\\

 +\\ 
 +==== Macro ==== 
 +In the “Macro” tab on and off values and icons are added.\\ 
 +For the fun of it, here a Icon of the fixture that are to be controlled are placed as the first icon.\\ 
 +It has no value and only makes an icon in the panel.\\ 
 +Also some blank icons are placed between the next set of switches. This is to make spaces in the control panel. For each to on / off icons a  new row are started See the Macro Panel bellow.\\

 +\\ 
 +==== Channel Description. ==== 
 +\\

 +==== Macro Panel ==== 
 +\\ 
 +This is how the panel looks like in FreeStyler.\\

 +\\ 
 +==== Single Fixture ==== 
 +The fixture above has a image the don’t tell what it is used for. As an alternative a fixture the only has one channel can be made but in this case 4 fixtures has to be placed on adjacent channels so the correct no of channels are occupied.\\ 
 +\\ 
 +Here is a one channel fixture that control a confetti fan. The panel looks like above but just occupy one address.\\ 
 +\\ 
 +{{:fixture_creator:tutorial:switchpack_fc_config_confetti.gif?|}}\\

 +[[http://www.freestylersupport.com/wiki/extrafiles/Eurolite_1ch_switch.pff]]\\ 
 +\\ 
 +==== Macro Panel ==== 
 +\\ 
 +In FreeStyler only a simple on / off icons are present.\\ 
 +\\ 
 +{{:fixture_creator:tutorial:switchpack_fs_macro_single_panel.gif?|}}\\ 
 +\\ 
 +==== Practical use of the single channel fixture. ==== 
 +\\ 
 +When single fixture are used combine with a multiple switch pack, it is important to place the single fixtures on adjacent channels and to occupy / reserve all addresses that the switch pack uses.\\ 
 +\\ 
 +{{:fixture_creator:tutorial:switchpack_fs_addresses.gif?|}}\\ 
 +\\ 
 +Here a dummy fixture are placed as fixture 4 as address holder so all 4 addresses are occupied.\\ 
 +\\ 
 +In FreeStyler all 4 single fixtures are placed.\\ 
 +As it can be seen here the fixture images tells more about the than the multipack fixture but are more critical to add where the multipack in one fixture occupy all 4 addresses.\\
