Tips: Quick Multi Lamp Editing

Recommended Posts

Let's look at the below example of two sets of lamps, the yellow row at the bottom is the primary lamp and the unlit lamps are the red super features.

The goal is to merge the lamps so they look like this.

This would make the lamp properities look like below.

Rather than do this by going into the Properties of each lamp, you can do this in about 20 seconds for the entire row while on the main editor screen with the following key.

Hold the CTRL key down while dragging the source lamp to the destination lamp as shown, note that your key maybe not this size depending on your keyboard.

The mouse pointer will change to the following icon to indicate that the lamp has been "grabbed".

Using this method you can quickly setup multi lamps.

Note: If there is text on them such as some of the Barcrest's where the red trail lamps can have different names, you have to manually edit those details on the right text box for the lamps.  In cases such as this, it is highly recommended that you have NO TEXT in the "Off" lamp and put the right text on the "On1" and "On2" lamps.

Really useful tip, I knew of the consolidate lamps but that only works if they are on top of each other so never really able to make use of it, thanks for this it will make a few machines less daunting.
