[Add]:
To add a new fixture to the patch, select a fixture from the Fixture Library first! Every click inside the patch now will create one fixture of the selected fixture type.

[Move]:
The Move Mode allows to move the fixtures on the patch. Just click on it and move it to the desired position. For accurate positioning you may want to enter the fixtures location in the Fixture Patch.

[Rotate]:
The Rotation Mode allows to rotate a fixture on the patch. Select the fixture by clicking on it. Hold the left mouse button pressed while moving the mouse cursor up (=clockwise rotation) or down (=anti-clockwise rotation). To rotate the fixture in an accurate angle you may want to enter the angle value in the Fixture Patch.
To rotate the fixture in 90° steps, you may as well simply use the Buttons [Rotate 90° ->] and [Rotate 90° <-] that you will find under Fixture Navigation Tools.

[Scale]:
The Scaling Mode allows to scale a fixture on the patch. Select the fixture by clicking on it. Hold the left mouse button pressed while moving the mouse cursor left (=decreasing the fixture size) or right (=increasing the fixture size). To scale the fixture to an accurate size you may want to enter the scaling factor value in the Fixture Patch.

[Drag]:
When being in Drag Mode you may move the whole Patch around in order to reach every part of the patch.

[Patch / Map Mode]:
This mode is interesting when working with rotated LED video tile connected via DVI and a LED video processor.
For more information please have a look at the ReMapping Guide.

[Add Array]:
After selecting a fixture from the Fixture Library this command will help you to add not only ONE copy to your current patch file (as the "Add" command does), but several ones. A dialog opens where you can set up how many copies you would like to add and the way how the array is inserted.
The Art-Net settings are of course only available if a DMX fixture was chosen from the library. The options are descriped here.
