Default Re: Eucon commands not stackable?

Anyway, you do not need Eucon commands for either play (obviously Space) or cycle (C). You could even assign a shortcut in Logic for the location function.

An example of something you can do with Eucon and not with any other protocol:

Change faders layout (ex: to strings) with a Mc command while simultaneously jumping to a proper Screenset (key shortcut), and playing back (key shortcut) from a marker (Eucon project specific) for the strings section. You could even change to a different touchscreen page (Page) simultaneously and trigger a series of other key functions.

It's very powerful, but if your making a complex macro it's useless to use the Eucon command for "play".
Actually, it isn't useless at all because there are some functions in logic which are dependent on window focus. The nice thing about Eucon is that it triggers functions on the "back end" without certain windows having to be in the foreground, etc.. Play and cycle are not obviously, however others are..

Plus, when stacking commands, now the only way is to find your first command in Eucon the usual way, then you have to switch over to key commands in logic to figure out what shortcut is the default, assign it if necessary, etc.. a pain, would be better to do them all in one place. Making the Eucon section searchable would also be nice.
