    I thought I used to be able to see what a zone would be outputting in the preview window even it the zone was muted... Upgraded to 603 recently and now it seems I don't see previews of zones unless they're unmuted. Is this intentional?

    Looks like this only applies to multi-zone preview window. Muted zones play back in the single window.

    Ok, I've done some additional testing moving zones around, etc.

    Would love it if someone would please follow the below repro conditions to see if it's just me or if this is a problem in 603.

    1. Setup some zones (doesn't seem to matter if they're default zones or user created) and point them at a connected DAC.
    2. Mute the first three zones in the zone list (either through the button on the Zone Settings General tab, or through the APC40's mute buttons.
    3. Switch preview window to show grid of 9 Zones (or any grid setting showing more than one zone). You should see the first three muted and the remainder not muted.
    4. Select one (or more) of the first 3 muted zones (by ctrl-clicking the preview window, or using the zone select buttons on the APC40)
    5. Run a cue in a selected (muted) zone. Note that the preview window will not show the running cue until that zone is un-muted. **in my setup the cue's default zone always points to a zone without a connected projector. This is how I ensure a cue ONLY plays if a zone is first selected.**

    Prior to 603 (was using 588) preview windows will show cues running in them even if they're muted. Afterall, that's what preview is all about, seeing something before you unmute it for the world to see.

    Also notice that if you have zones 1-9 muted, place cues in them and then switch the preview window back to single view (no grid) that all cues will show even though they're playing in muted zones.

    Fixed by reverting to 588

    Thanks for feedback! From build 605 the preview of muted zones will be controlable from "Configuration" dialog, tab "Laser Preview". Some users like to have blocked preview of muted zones, some are not. New checkbox allow to control this option. I ensured that new option work correctly in all modes including ERP.

    Thanks for feedback!

    This is out of our rules to publish every new build or update too quickly. I sent you a link to internal version for a test.

    Best Regards,
