Running Flowarm PLTW and for some reason while running a pattern it will either restart the pattern or switch to a different pattern without warning. Has this happened to anyone else? this is while running a Lynxmotion al5d on windows 10 by usb.

The issue is most likely that you have physical inputs of your board currently assigned to patterns. If you have nothing connected to those inputs, they will be what is called "floating" inputs, which makes them vulnerable to ambient noise.

You can check if any input (or key) is assigned to a pattern by expanding the pattern list. Also, you can clear all of the assigned inputs & keys by clicking Clear all. See the image below for details.

Let us know if this helps.
