Tiny Tip: Shift Next/Last

I program in Blind a LOT.  One of the things I’ve always wanted is an easier way to shift between selecting an item to edit in Blind (Color Palette 5001) and the contents within (Channel 9060 Enter) and then shift to the next item to edit.  I’ve just been typing everything out the long way, over and over.  Imagine my surprise when I was teaching Eos Level 1 and 2 last week and discovered Shift Next/Last.

In Blind, select Color Palette 1.  Now select some fixture or fixtures inside of it.  If you hit Next, Eos will cycle through the selected fixtures.  But if you hit Shift Next, Eos will go to the next Color Palette.  Same with Shift Last.

I don’t know if this function has been around for a while and I never noticed, or if this is a newer addition.  But it’s amazing and is going to save me a ton of keystrokes for the foreseeable future.  Hopefully it helps in your work flow too.

What little keyboard combo on Eos have you recently discovered that makes a huge difference to your work?  Hit me in the comments.
