    How can I assign a zone to multiple Cues in one go? In other words, how can I set more than one Cue at a time to a Zone?

    I dont want to right click on each Cue > Properties > add another Zone.

    For example tomorrow night I have a show where a laser will be hung from the ceiling (using a DiscoScan) and a couple of lasers on stage. I will be using 2x FB3's, 1x FB3 for the ceiling projector and the other FB3 for the stage projectors daisy chained. A lot of the time I want the one Zone to cater for all lasers. However it doesn't work that way, different FB3s are assigned to different zones. Hence I will need to edit a lot of Cues so all projectors (via 2xFB3s) display the same Cue at the same time.

    It would be great if you could set entire page (or a marque selection of Cues, or even just a selection on a page using the Shift Key) to include an output Zone to multiple Cues. Is this possible?

    I hope this makes sense. Thanks for reading.

    Right click on the zone preview window, and select "Show 9 zones".

    Now click on 1 zone and then select a cue.

    To send 1 cue to multiple zones:

    Hold down the ctrl button and select multiple zones,

    Then select a cue and it will output to more than 1 zone.

    No need to set them at all (except for beam chases)
