After Closing Rgb Control It Comes Up Empty When Adding Again

I use jd without a head, I removed the rgb control from the project. When trying to add that control back again it comes up blank without pre programed patterns. Is there a way to re load the patterns that come with the original jd project back onto the blank panel?

It will be empty, because it's a new control.

I would recommend using the default JD project. the Default JD project has improvements (for better walking, etc) that your saved project will no longer have. Or, at the least, use the Merge option to merge the RGB Animator and Auto Position into your project.

The new version of ARC has improved projects, as seen here: https://www.ez-robot.com/Community/Forum/Thread?threadId=9997

Also, it's a good idea to use the learn section to begin learning the software ARC. All controls have a ? (question mark) next to the X (close) button. Pressing that ? on the control will load the manual page for the control. The control in question is RGB Animator.

All controls when added to a project will be empty. Just like if you open Microsoft Word, or Microsoft Paint, or move into a new home. Until you have created something with the control, it will be empty. Once you have created something, the FILE->SAVE option allows you to save the project, which saves the configuration for the controls. Similar to saving a MS Word document.

In the case of JD, you're loading the JD project. Or, in your case you're loading a project that you created from the JD project. I would recommend revisiting the default JD project to benefit from its improvements.

Have fun!:D
