    Any one got any ideas if this can be achieved?

    input device to function like the below
    Off = off
    On = on to preset say 20% not 100%
    aswell as having dimmer as long press? So dimmed level could be altered if more than 20% is desired

    Looking at the dimming function, the short release is dim stop etc
    So I can’t see how this could be achieved?

    No, you can't do this on a single switch. The toggle function only toggles between 0 and 255.

    You can fake it with a logic unit. Replace the short release toggle function with a preset to 1%. Then in logic whenever you see 1% on that ga just alternate it between 0 and 20%. Looks fine in practice because if the light was off it goes to 1% then 20%, and if it was on at any level it will go to 1% then off. The dimming function works as normal.
