SCROLL FUNCTIONS FOR QLIST
Inside the QL window in addition to the functions to advance and go back a cue, from this version we also have the functions of “Go to the beginning” and “Go to the end”. Very useful to initiate the QList, and to continue recording from the last cue
FUNCTION TO DELETE THE TEMPORARY FILES
Is a new function that allows to delete the temporary files of the HHDD of the console. What are temporary files? These files are used every time the console it’s turned off, in which the configuration of monitors, tables, active show, etc. is recorded. They are used at each switching on to retrieve the status of the console. If these files are not found at power up, the console will start with the default settings, the same as when the console was first started.
It gives you Access to the list of open applications that they depend on the console, but they are independent applications:
You can see the opened applications and close them. It’s just for help and control.
UPDATE OF INTERNAL PROGRAMMING LIBRARIES

IMPROVEMENTS IN UPDATE PROCERSS (UPDATER)
From this version the software update supports files with copy number control in the name. For example, Updater.exe works the same with the original HYDRAII_612.rar file as it does with the HYDRAII_612(1).rar file that is produced, for example, in a second download of the package.
From this version manufacturer list is updated in the fixtures update process, as well as in the software update.
Confirmation messages for actions such as set a default patch, etc, did not accept the mouse click (on message from external monitors)
When on the master console you close the QL MDFY table opened for a single cue, the slave console closes this table but leaves the touch tools open.
OK OK BUG
For Hydra II 2ºG consoles, when you did a double click on OK the system crashed.
The external application that the system uses to allow the user to translate any text was having problems shutting down the console if it had not been closed beforehand. The execution mode has been changed and it no longer gives problems.
When editing a Shape applied to some fixtures with ORDERS, updating the item table, the system could crash.
QL LevelStop & A/B
The Stop command of a QList fader set as LevelStop or LevelStartStop changed the current cue in scene of the A/B Sequence.
FIXTURES PATCH AND ITS TEST TOOLS
Sometimes when entering the Fixtures Patch, or scrolling thought it with the cursor, the console would crash, due to an error in updating the values for Pan & Tilt in the output test tools of the Patch itself.
