Title: Alternate way to assign a channel to a screen division
Post by: hype on April 08, 2013, 06:38:48 PM
A suggestion if I may:

Currently to assign a channel to a screen division one must drag the channel down onto the zone in the output preview.  This approach works perfectly but what also would be nice to also have a flyout of a list of the zones for the selected output to allow one to assign channels as an alternative.  Reason being is often I create zones that exist behind others (eg. transparent hole in screen skin for content) making it difficult to assign channels efficiently.  To insert channels into these hidden zones currently, I have to go to 'Screen Types' and manually move up the hidden zones in the list, then go back to my timeline and drag to insert the channels, then go back into 'Screen Types' once again and move the zones back to their proper locations.

Look forward to this feature being added.

Regards,

Jon

Good idea, I waste a lot of time because of this, it would be a great improvement to have a option in the channel properties to choose the screen devision to use.
