Spotlight numbering: one more increment option


I am very excited about the spotlight numbering tool. I solves most of my annoyances with instrument numbering. 


There is just one more thing that would make this great new tool fabulous: The option to trigger the increment of one used field by the "limit restart at" of another used field. 


So if I were to set the field Circuit Number to restart at 6 (a soca multicable) then this would trigger the field Circuit name to increment by the set value for this field. 


Then I would not have to go back to the Spotlight Numbering tool after each soca is full, but just continue numbering as long as I need to.


This could look like another check box saying: Increment at Limit Restart of field: (and then a drop down holding each field that has a "Limit Restart at" set

That would definatly be a great update!  That would also work for dmx adressesing I presume??

In my opinion it should work for any selected field.
