Export Step Recipes

  • Hello,

    I've created some simple dimmer step recipes with step creator. Now I want to export them to an external drive. There're export/import buttons in the edit menu of step recipes (as in a macro - export/import function of a macro works properly). But with a step recipes export function does not work. It opens export menu, but does not change destination: shows only my pc's internal hard drive, even if I change it to external and others.

  • There is a bug with the general export/import function of the graphical userinterface, as its filebrowser requires a predefined library-path for the objects to be exported/imported


    Please use the commandline interface as described below for objects where GUI import/export fails.

    - replace [squarebrackets] with appropriate values

    - Italic lines are not mandatory for the actual import/export

    - be aware that future software-revisions may not be able to import the file unless it is moved to a specific library-path on the drive.


    Export:

    Menu "CommandLineHistory"

    List Drive *

    Select Drive [drivenumber]

    Export [object-type] [objectID] "[filename]"

    Menu "CommandLineHistory"


    Import:

    Menu "CommandLineHistory"

    ChangeDestination [object-type]

    List Drive *

    Select Drive [drivenumber]

    List Library

    Import Library "[filename].xml"

    ChangeDestination Root

    Menu "CommandLineHistory"


    Example export steprecipes to USB:

    Select Drive 2

    Export StepRecipe 5 Thru 10 "mychasers"

    Select Drive 1



    Example import steprecipes from USB:

    ChangeDestination StepRecipe

    Select Drive 2

    Import Library "mychasers.xml"

    ChangeDestination Root

    Select Drive 1

    Edited once, last by Andreas: adjusted placement of square brackets from [filename.xml] to [filename].xml to better indicate the currently required .xml file-extension in the import argument ().
