-Each fixture is represented by an icon. Most generic icons are square.
-If the fixture is an LED, the square will fill with the color output, if the fixture is a dimmer, the square will fill with a representation of the intensity level.
-To select a fixture simply left click on the icon. A yellow square will appear. When selected you can adjust the parameters using the palettes menu or presets.
-Groups allow you to select a group of fixtures to apply the same parameters across all fixtures selected.
-Generally assign groups to fixtures of the same type in similar locations
-Examples: Back Lights, Face Wash, Up Lights, House Lights, etc.
-If you find yourself selecting several fixtures often, create a group so you do not have to keep picking each individually.
-I often like to split out even and odd groups
-When you left click on a group, it selects everything in the group and puts a yellow box around everything selected.
-Generally consider this a hard click, you are now editing everything in the fixture group
-When you right click on a group, it selects just the fixture group item.
-You are now only moving or editing that button
To deselect, click off into a blank area.
