Manage Positions

Rigging positions can be created, edited, and deleted here. Single or multiple trim heights, along with a short note, can be defined for each position.

To create a new position, click on the small + button. A ‘New Position’ line will be created, where upon it can be edited to the desired name. To remove a position, click on the small button. Confirmation is required before a position can be deleted. It is not possible to delete a position containing fixtures in Rig Data.

Positions can also be defined from the Add Fixtures facility in Rig Data. Positions added in Rig Data will be added to the ‘Position’ list.

Positions can be dragged in to any order within the list. This order defines the order positions will appear in the ‘Positions’ filter in Rig Data.

The ‘Manage Positions window’ calculates and displays the number of fixtures each positions contains in Rig Data, and the total weight of the rigged fixtures, derived from weight data in the fixture profiles.

If all the fixture profiles within a position contain weight data, then the total weight can be certain, and the weight figure is displayed in black. If any of the fixture profiles are missing weight data, then the total weight will not be correct, and the calculated value will be displayed in red.

The ‘Manage Positions window’ can display one trim height per position. Clicking the Additional Trims button will open a fly out panel allowing additional trims to be documented. Clicking the button again will close the panel.

Manage Positions – Additional Trims

Weights and trim heights are displayed in either metric or imperial units, as defined in File->Preferences. Values are not converted between systems, so if the display metric is changed, the values will be incorrect in the new units.
