    Hi guys,

    We might have the opportunity to tackle an issue/bug soon, and both the client and our team is interested in your feedback: http://dev.sourcefabric.org/browse/CC-5446

    To summarize it again, you can't edit a linked show that's currently playing. For example, if you have a huge linked show that features a smart block and you want to rearrange or change some songs while the show is already playing, you can't do that. This is especially annoying if you're using 24-hour linked shows.

    The most straightforward solution for us would be to just unlink a show when you edit it, if it's currently playing. That means your edits would only apply to the current playing show, which I think is what you'd want most of the time. If you want to edit future instances and preserve the linking, you would just edit a future scheduled instance in the calendar, and that would affect all other future linked instances of that show.

    Does this make sense to you guys and sound useful?

    For me this would make sense.
    But this should be stated with a message anywhere when doing this...
