Flash activate? (Solved)

(Using M-Touch’s singular Play buttons for this)

Is there any way to activate a cue by holding a single button, toggling off upon release of button?

I have a cue that sets all my lights to strobe, and also sets all lights’ effects to stop. Currently I have it set to Toggle, but I would really like to simply hold the button down when I want strobing instead of activating+deactivating it.

Lots of songs need strobing for a single 16th note, it’s very troublesome to tap the button twice - especially when the button doesn’t always respond to quick low velocity presses. Currently smacking the heck out of the buttons to nail the timing. I fear the worst for my board and finger bones lol

Set button’s “Down Action” to “GO” and “Up Action” to “RELEASE”?

Change Cuelist type to Override
Button will automatically default to Flash+ GO

This activates it but does not deactivate upon releasing the button, I needed to change Up Action to release as well. Thank you

Button defaults to Flash+ Activate…

And yes, it does disactivate upon button release…

I changed the cuelist to override, made sure it was Flash+activate, Up action was set to “nothing” by default. Flash+activate remained activated causing my lights to strobe nonstop until I manually deactivated the cue. I needed to set Up action to “Release” in order for the strobing to stop upon lifting my finger off the button.

Tried it multiple times to make sure

edit: In fact, I tried flash+activate first because naturally I figured flash would deactivate upon letting go of the button. Maybe it’s a bug on my end if it is supposed to function as Release on Up Action by default
