  1. true but I actually want the letters to be on their side as opposed to on top of each other.
  2. I am using P10 panels and therefore the 'TextPE' (and 'text', though I haven't really found why I would use that one) is a useful tool for Now playing and prompts etc. Instead of using a singular font though, I am using several fonts and it would be useful if I could press the first letter of the font name and the list jump down to that part of the list. eg if I am I the Arial part of the list and I press H then it would jump down to the Helvetica part of the list. I also noticed the mouse wheel doesn't scroll the list, you have to use the arrows on the list to move it around.
  3. Matt, For the motion effects and specifically on the 'TextPE' function, can you add an orientation selector. I am putting 6 P10 panels vertically mounted which will normally offer things like an equalizer effect, but on occasion it might be nice to run text down them (on their side). To do this rotating the text 90 degrees from the norm is my ask. N
  4. by the time i am finished there will 3 columns of 6 panels (we have a deck in the front of the house where the roof is held up by 3 columns, the props will be mounted to the 3 supports) aka: https://www.dropbox.com/s/2aqq66rdk2de6t4/3columns.JPG?dl=0 I want to run each column on its own output port (O1, O2, O3) so the cable length is minimised. As I say, If a single output is connected up it all works just fine but when I use multiple outputs nothing works. I assume I am missing a fundamental setting. (for testing, I am just using 2 panels. either hanging them off their individual port (O1, O2) which doesn't appear to work, or one panel hanging off the second (which does work).
  5. OK here is the latest. I changed the panels to a 1/8 scan and everything works. I can out put to the panels. I have a new problem. I created a test sequence that scrolls through the panels displaying each panel name (Panel 1, panel 2, etc.) and doing a quick RGB colour flash so I can see I can get to each panel and test the LEDS. Nothing too complex. Here is the weird bit. There are 12 panels. If I hang all panels off one BBB octascroller port then everything works fine (Doesn't matter which port). If I split them so 6 are on O1, and 6 are on O2. there is NO output observed at all. I assume I am missing something in setup? https://www.dropbox.com/s/t5rxwcy8b7smece/2019 04 30 MultiOutput.png?dl=0 Ideas?
  6. Sure - You are right. It was late.
  7. Build 5.2.4 (Maybe others) There is a bug that can be infuriating. Setting up 20 DMX channels at once. Start filling in the dialogue box. Comment Select E1.31 Specify IP Address Select Total number of universes. DO NOT select from pull down, select by typing 20 in the dialogue box. Press OK You will find the DMX universes were not created in the Net config. You HAVE to select the number from the pulldown. Nick
