Since it is created for beginners, I assume that you'd already understand the basic functions of the Cue Control. So I will only explain the advanced feature of it. I've created another page purposely for explaining another feature of Cue Control; the Generic Macro Editor. (Effects page)

Loading BG Cue from Cue Control - you can load BG Cue from a saved cuelist, by using the drag & drop method from the BG Cuelist to this blank space on Cue Control
( ). Save the cuelist when you have a BG Cuelist on. It will load the BG Cue when you launch the cuelist.

Transparent Cue (click 'Save as Transparent cue' when save cuelist) - This load the cuelist like normal except the previous cueslot will replace any empty cueslot of the currently loaded transparent cuelist.

Chase Manual ( ) - this is a very good feature for creating timing chase during showtime. When you press 'Chase Man' then press 'Trigger Manual Sequences Fwd'
() twice to fwd to the next sequence. The console will then record the timing between the sequence as a chase for that cueslot. (The console does not keep record of the chase timing once the 'Chase Man' is release.) (This will only work under manual Trig mode.)

Cue Time Control () - this is another way to control the overall auto trig speed for a cueslot. Simply drag the bar on the Cue Time Control, 100% is default speed, lower = faster, higher = slower. You can set them all back to normal by selecing the 'Default' -> All. Most settings are very easy to understand. (This will also be stored when you save cuelist and load with it.)

Cue Loop Control () - this changes the looping of sequence for the cue control. You can set the loop option for individual cue, save it along with the cuelist.
A) Trig Options = this is for Manual/Auto trig mode, determines how many scenes will be triggered for one click. 'Trig on load' - trigger cueslot once load cuelist.

B) Loop Direction - changes the loop direction for auto trig mode. You can see the direction status on the 'Loop' column on Cue Control.

C) Scene Limits - this changes the scene order and how many loops you want for the cueslot. You can change it by setting first scene start at 2, end at scene 5 and how many loops. By default the loops will be blank which means it is non-stop. You can set how many times of looping which corresponds to the 'End Loop Action'. (Setting back to 0 can turn back to non-stop looping.)

D) End Loop Action - this is made purposely to set what happens in the 'End Loop Action' depends on how you set the loops on 'Scene Limits' .
: - 'Stop on scene/Goto Scene' - this will set which scene to go to/which scene to stop and when the loop ends.
: - 'Sequence Out/Link to Cue' - Stop the sequence outputing values/ link to selected cue page when the loop ends.

Cue Macro Control () - this is purposely for controlling movement macro for the cue control. This is applied to the entire Cue Control. However, it doesn't work on individual cueslot. There are 2 faders 'Amplitude' for the overall size of the P/T of movement macro, 'Speed' for the overall speed of movement macro. You can FadeIn/Out or Macro On/Off for the movement macro in the cue. (This is saved into cuelist too.)

Under the preference of the Cue Macro Control, there are 2 settings which I want to explain : -
'Allow Fader Preset' = when this is off, during Macro fadeOut/Off by pressing on the fader, it will instantly turn back on; right where you have selected on the fader. When this setting is turned On, it will not turn back on again when you click on fader. But it will set a value on the fader. So during Macro fadeIn/On it will reach the value that you set. (Dark blue color = set value, blue color = active value.)

'Speed Fader Link' = there are two options, one is 'To Amplitude' which will change to 1 fader controlling both speed and amplitude. Two is ' To CueTime' which will link to the Cue Time Control, the cue time fader will control speed. (Only the amplitude fader will show.)
