Labeling cues on Express consoles

If you have Expression Off-Line, you may assign labels to your cues.

Labels can consist of any combination of letters, numbers and symbols and may be up to 16 characters long.

50 For information about Expression Off-Line and how to order it, see Expression Off- Line.

Follow these steps to label a cue:

Keystrokes: Action:
1. Press [Stage] or [Blind] Selects display mode
2. Press [Cue] [1][2] [Label].a Selects Cue 12
Prompt reads:
Type cue label
(F6 = clear to end, F7 = last cue label, F8 = next cue label)
3.  Use the alphanumeric keyboard to type the desired label. For example, call cue 12 “Toad exits.” Enters cue label
Corner reads:
Label Toad exits
4. Press [Enter].b Records Cue 12 with label “Toad exits”

The Label key is not available on the Express console. You may type keyboard equivalent “B” in Expression Off-Line as a substitute for the Label key.
If the cue did not previously exist, press [Record] [Enter] in step 4. This will create the cue and label, all in one step.
