Hi, let me answers these below.

1) Once you patch in a profile, it copies in the information of the profile's current state, it doesn't update the profile, it keeps it as it was until it is deleted, or a new copy of that profile is patched, if you make changes to the profile after it is patched, and as soon as you delete the patched profile, it erases all of the programming associated with that fixture. there is no "live connection" between patched fixtures in the grid and the most recent version of a profile sitting in the library, if that makes sense. This is why it is super important to test, test, and test profiles you are using until you are happy with them and then proceed to program. This is how it's always been.

2) I'm not sure exactly what you mean? The actual colors outputting? This could also be a profile issue, there are still some profiles that need to be optimized for the 3D, if you know of some, feel free to email them to me and i can update them. jamesk at americandj dot com

3) They have both been out on the MyDMX 2.1 software since Dec of 2015 by now i believe, you can always find the latest releases posted to our website.
Or also join this nice MyDMX 2.0 user community on facebook:

4) In the new release of 2.1 there is a new tool that you can use to check, we tried to do use the updater, but there were issues. What was the last release before 2.1 you had installed?

5) This was brought up before, i'll have to check if it was something we are going to do or not.

6) The only update from 2.0 to 2.1 is the ability to use the new 2.1 interface, that's it, everything else is the same and we do not normally post change logs between versions.

So, i'll say that the Scan library editor for Mac and Windows is pretty much final version, so feel free to use that if you want. As far as the 3D goes, it really has proven to be a huge undertaking for our development team, the code running under the hood has been rewritten several times as we've had different members of the engineering team leave or join. But it really is still being worked on, but i think if you play around in the 3D on the newest 2.1 update, you'll find it to be quite nice!

Thank you for your feedback, and if you ever have questions or issues and you want to speak directly to me you can find me in that facebook group, or I left my email above.
