Any way to Import a Page of SoftKeys from an older AppSet?
 
I've been looking through the Eucon documentation and Support Pages without avail, so I'm turning here.

I'm hoping that there is a way to import a "Page" of SoftKeys from an older version of an AppSet.

Specifically, I use Pro Tools. 10 years ago, I bought an Avid Control (Well, MC Control) and programmed 2 pages (135, 136) of custom SoftKeys that I have modified and rely on, to this day. Basically, every time a new AppSet is released for PT, I copy and rename my old User Set to match the current version (ie - "Pro Tools 19Mac.xml")

In the intervening 10 years, the ways that Softkeys are used in Pro Tools has changed, to accommodate the newer hardware and new PT features. A lot of those new pages seem well laid-out, plus there seem to be extra (new) pages available for User Softkeys. I'd really like to take advantage of that, but I also would really like to not have to re-program my 2 pages of existing Softkeys from scratch.

So, what I'm looking for the answer to is - Can I (somehow) import the contents my old/existing SoftKey Pages 135 and 136 into the new default PT Appset (for 2020) in the current Pages used for User SoftKeys (146, 148, 149)?

The SoftKeys Editor in EuControl lets you Import different Appsets, but does not seem to have a function that allows you to import parts of them.

Sorry no easy way. The file is an xml so you can copy and paste the text from one file to the other if you have an xml text editor.

Thanks Eddie. That's about what I expected. Any suggestions on finding the correct set of lines to correspond to the relevant pages? Hoping that I can gran the whole chunk for a page, copy it to a new doc, and experiment with cut-pasting.

Open them side by side and then search for your page, it should be quite easy to see what to do.
