Draw Beam keyboard shortcut?

Not directly.  But you can write a simple script and assign that script to a menu command.  That menu command can have a keyboard shortcut.

This file has two trivial scripts that will turn the beam on or off for the selected instrument.

It wouldn't take much to make it actually useful.  (work on all selected instruments, or work on all instruments, or toggle instead of dedicated On/Off scripts)

Or you could get Sam Jones' tools.  He's already done it.

Or I could just post the script :-)


This will turn the beam on a selected fixture off:  


SetRField(LSActLayer, 'Lighting Device','Draw Beam','False');



This will turn the beam on a selected fixture on:


SetRField(LSActLayer, 'Lighting Device','Draw Beam','True');


This is just the bare idea.  You would want to add a function that gets called from a For Every loop to call up all the selected light fixtures.


I'm almost positive Sam Jones has written a bunch of these.  You can used his and assign shortcuts.  Or you can add these to your workspace.
