Fill in the description as desired.  Select the proper serial port
(com1=serial0, com2=serial1...).  Edit the input and output labels as
desired under the Configure Inputs and Configure Outputs buttons.

Note when you clicked on the ADD button, it assigned the next available
matrix number.  This number will show in the switcher list when you are

Now go to RDLibrary and create some Macro carts.  A command like this

ST 0 4 1!

will switch matrix 0 input 4 to output 1.  Your matrix number may be

not set any switchers up yet, so the default matrix number will be '0'.

Then put these macro carts in your log and you are all set.
