Control Panel

The LOR Control Panel will not normally be used, unless you are wanting a scheduled show to run. However, there is no reason you can't leave it running all the time.

From the control panel, you can start the various programs within LOR. The Sequence Editor, Show Editor and Schedule Editor can all be started from within the Control Panel.

The Control Panel also contains two important commands that you will need. Enable Shows and Disable Shows do exactly as they imply. If you have the shows enabled then your shows will run when you have them schuled. If the shows are disabled, they will not run, no matter when you want them to.

Setting Light-O-Rama to Launch at Startup PDF Print
