I have an issue with the universe label customisation.


I have changed the universe labels in spotlight preferences for system A (generic desk).


These are now set to letters (it's just how the crew chief does it at this venue).


Despite the fact no changes have been made to the system B labels (moving light desk) all the lighting device-universe address have picked up the universe label for system A.


As shown in the third jpg the hightlighted fixture is on system B, universe 5. The rig was addressed prior to the editing of the universe labels.


Anybody got any ideas why this has happened please, and what type of input this label will take.


Thank you.


(I had previously tried to set the labels to reflect artnet sub/universe numbers to aid the rigging crew. However it seemed rather fussy and confusing as to what data you could input, eg text acceptable, 0.1 acceptable 1.0 not acceptable.)
