Thanks for the new update Eddie. The Reverse Dyn layout feature is massive for me.

I'm noticing a couple of odd things with 18.3 that I wondered if anyone else can reproduce. On my Artist Mix, when in Inserts mode, the 'On' buttons don't illuminate to show plug-in activation anymore - they function as expected, bypassing plugs, but there is no LED feedback.

Also, when switching Layouts to an Auto-Assigned layout from a saved layout, the Artist Mix jumps to an arbitrary group of tracks, ignoring the original position or current banking position. Is that just happening here? Being able to jump from attentioned tracks, to saved VCA's, to auto-assigned is a big part of my workflow.

I'm running Pro Tools 2018.1 on a late 2013 Mac Pro with 10.12.6.

Working with Artist Mix here.
Once I toggle to Finder and back to PT, the PT Control looses the display it was having prior to that (i.e. automation page 7 goes back to page 1).
I also assign specific locked tracks on the Artist Mix and all of a sudden it forgets the current layout and I have to redefine the layout.
Is it a bug? Is it a feature?

Hi, thanks for the new release.

Are the manuals missing or am I looking in the wrong place?

I'm used to copy the "Documents" folder from the EuCon DMG (installer) to my ~User/Documents folder. Can't find the manuals for 2018.3.

As this is now a Unified Installer the specific guides are in the MyAvid account only.

Out of curiosity, what does it really mean, "a Unified Installer"?

Anyway, I'm sorry .. I can't find the documentation for the control surfaces. They used to be included in the DMG package. Maybe I'm missing some info about where they moved. In any case, in MyAvid account I can only find these three documents related to the 2018.3 release:
  • EUCON_Application_Setup_Guide_v18_3_102015.pdf
  • Pro_Tools_Control_Guide_102011.pdf
  • Whats_New_in_EuControl_18_3_102012.pdf

  • Whats_New_in_EuControl_18_3_102012.pdf
In the MyAvid account, you'll find the specific documentation for the control surfaces under the Control Surface entry. For instance, if you have an S3 there will be a registered entry for the hardware and in that one you'll find the three documents you mention above plus a document for the S3. Same for the Dock.

And on that note, Eddie, the Artist series still lives on the separate website. Is there any way to bring that over to the MyAvid website?
