Rename a fixture type


The fixture type given by the manufacturer does not make sense.


This may lose fixture functionality like media previews or virtual intensities.

Steps to Solution

  1.  Schedule the existing fixture
  2.  Open the fixture builder
  3.  Select Copy Type
  4.  Tap on Limit to Fixtures in Use
  5.  Select the fixture you want to rename and hit OK
  6.  Change the Type name
  7.  Hit build type

This does not rename the fixture in the fixture library. This creates a brand new fixture type with the name given. If you have existing programming, you will need to Change Type to the new fixture type
