Note: It is possible to create buttons that blank either just individual signs or zones, multiple zones, or all signs and all zones for a player type, i.e. all DMP-8000 signs and zones.  Or you can just blank an individual zone to make a graphic exit and blank from that zone. For example, you could have a button that pushes up a score bug graphic and a separate button the uses a push down exit transition to plan the score bug graphic during a replay.
