Fig.64: Menu Figure Assignment

This menu provides information and configuration tools for the figure assignment to keys. As this is a central feature in Laserworld Showeditor, it is recommended to take advantage of the tools offered here working with the software.

 

6.16.1. Print PC-List

Print a list of the assigned figures per key. It is helpful to have an overview in print sometimes when programming quickly or only by using a keyboard. The list also shows which keys haven’t been used for assignments yet.

 

6.16.2. Show PC-List

Display a list of the assigned figures per key. The list shows which keys haven’t been used for assignments yet. In many cases it’s easier to open the Live Window instead and see which keys have already been assigned.

 

6.16.3. Print Keyboard-List

The MIDI-keyboard key assignment list can be printed with using this menu item. The print-out can be attached to the keyboard then.

 

6.16.4. Show Keyboard-List

The MIDI-keyboard key assignment list can be displayed with using this menu item.

 

6.16.5. Assign Figure

This provides the same features as the “Assign Figure” Button. Please refer to Chapter 6.11.10 for details.

 

6.16.6. Assign all Figures automatically

By using this menu item, all existing assignments are reset and the actually loaded figures (Figure Table) are assigned automatically to keys. If there are more figures than can fit on one keyboard set, the figures, which do not fit any more, are assigned to the next tab of figures (switchable by the F-keys). The assignment does not happen in a special order, so it is recommended to manually assign the figures to have better control over the order.
When automatically having assigned the figures, a dialog shows up asking if MIDI and DMX shall be assigned as well.

 

6.16.7. Delete all DMX Assignments

Delete all present DMX assignments.

 

6.16.8. Delete all MIDI Assignments

Delete all present MIDI assignments.

 

6.16.9. Delete all Key Assignments

Delete all key assignments. Be careful: It is necessary to have figures assigned to keys to use them with most of the output features of Laserworld Showeditor.

 

6.16.10. Show Unused Keys

As only one figure can be assigned to a certain key (per Tab, switchable by F-keys), it is important to know which keys have been assigned already. The Live Window also offers an overview of the unused keys: Open the window – free key positions are marked as “free”. Already assigned keys show the preview picture of the figure.
