how to add focus room on data chain?

There are 2 ways to accomplish this,


When the make data cable chain command is run for the first time and you have finished selecting the fixtures, the preferences dialogue will open.

In the calculate parts section enter the desired length in the 'part 1vert dist' field,

note: make sure you enter the desired length including both ends of the cable, so  in your example because you want 2' at each end you need to enter 4'.


The second method is for all subsequent uses of the make data chain command

after running the command, the data cables will automatically remain selected. Use the OIP to enter the desired extra length, same workflow as above.

note: you will only have to change the 'part 1 vert dist' field if you want a different value from the previous use, as the command remembers the last value entered.
