Currently Active Profile?

Hi, new to SGPro, but getting great results so far. Not sure if I’m having a senior moment but does it show somewhere what the currently active equipment profile is active for a sequence?



There is no “currently active profile” for a sequence. When a new sequence is created, it will use the equipment profile that is that moment the default profile. As soon as the new sequence has been created, it is no longer linked to the original equipment profile. Any changes to sequence or equipment profile are done independently from thereon. However, you can can make changes to an equipment profile and then (re-)apply that equipment profile to a sequence. That way the changes in the equipment profile are propagated to the sequence. Or you can apply an entirely different equipment profile to that same sequence. It just does not happen automatically when you merely update the equipment profile. Hope this helps.

Ok, so where does it show what the current default profile is? For example if you go to File/New Sequence, then it doesn’t show what equipment profile was applied, which is default, but what?

Equipment profiles are created in the Equipment Profile Manager. You can assign one equipment profile as default for new sequences. This is convenient if you generally use the same equipment. In this case, a sequence created with ‘New Sequence’ (in the File menu) will contain the data of the default equipment profile.

If you have created several equipment profiles and you want to check whether one of them is assigned as default equipment profile, call the Equipment Profile Manager and select an equipment profile, one by one. A default equipment profile will have the ‘Use profile as default for new sequences’ option checked.

If different equipment profiles are used alternately, use ‘New Sequence with Profile’ (in the File menu) and choose the appropriate equipment profile (which of cause must have been created before).

There are additional possibilities: you can create a new profile from a sequence, you can apply a profile to an existing sequence. The whole topic is described in detail in the SGP manual, section “Profiles”.
