iSSUE EXPORT SCREEN CONFIG

  • What is your actual purpose, what are you trying to achieve?


    the screenshot I am seeing is a generic editor, that would open for any object you call by Edit, which hasn't a dedicated editor or other defined edit-behavior.

    This generic editor may have generic buttons & function that relies on information of the object, which may not yet exist ( e.g. a proper import/export path) thus will not always have full functionality.


    Where in the manual did you find the topic regarding support for exporting screenconfigs?

  • What is your actual purpose, what are you trying to achieve? ---> im trying keep my own set up in screen to use with same profile, Also i can copy the profile and modidy but i see this option and i think is interesting keep on mind working with one profile and diferent screenconfigs.


    Where in the manual did you find the topic regarding support for exporting screenconfigs? --> Really i didn t find nothing about this. Is the reason im asking about it.

  • The main purpose for screenconfigurations is to allow a second station (typically a 3D computer) to use the same userprofile as the primary station (console/onPC) to enable sharing of cameraselection, programmercontent, etc.

    - But to display different/other Windows on the second station (e.g. permanently a full screen 3D window)

    Without the screenconfigs option, the second station would merely be mirroring the screens of the primary station, when using the same userprofile.


    Screenconfigurations are a subset of the userprofile, so any alternative screenconfigs you create, are export/imported with the userprofile.


    Screenconfigurations rely on objects in other sibling subsets of the userprofile (e.g. viewpool/views), so the usecases for exporting only the screenconfig subset is quite limited, (if there is any at all), thus import/export-support of this sub-object is "yet to come"



  • Very interesting explanation. Yes, I realized that the screenconfig depended directly on the profile. The new software has really changed a lot and offers interesting things. Yes, it would be interesting maybe in the future to be able to export and import this option. Thanks for the explanation again.

  • I read this because I have an issue with ScreenConfig in another thread.


    At the moment I could use Export to make a backup because my Configs get reset all the time...


    Not sure what you mean by "Generic Editor" Andreas, but when we are in the "Edit ScreenConfig" window and see an Export button we can't be blamed for trying it :)


    I understand it's not finished so I'll find another solution.

    'Not add ScreenConfigs' seems to be the best in this version. Turns out I'm not using it for it's main purpose anyway.


    This is what it looks like on the desk btw:
